The average number of years remaining for a living being of a given age to live is called life expectancy. Life expectancy is often referred to as average life span or mean life span.

It is a frequently utilized and analyzed component of demographic data for countries of the world. Life Expectancy shows the overall health of a country. It has been often observed that women have higher life expectancies than men. Some experts say that Women are biologically superior to men. Life expectancy falls due to a number of problems such as famine, war, disease and poor health. Higher life expectancy indicates good development rates.

According to the Population Reference Bureau's 2000 World Data Sheets, life expectancy at birth for Indians is between 60 and 61 years. This was also confirmed by the most recent Census of India in 2001. Only 4% of our population is over the age of 65%. In parts of the world with much better access to medicine and healthcare, these numbers are substantially higher. In Japan, for example, nearly 17% of the population is aged over 65 years. And the average Japanese, with a life-expectancy of 80 years, lives fully a third longer than the average Indian.
