Life expectancy in Spain 2009-2018

Sunshine, Mediterranean diet, and a sociable lifestyle must be the secret to living a long life, because Spain’s life expectancy ranked as one of the highest on the planet according to the most recent studies. The Mediterranean country managed to increase its average life expectancy by approximately two years in the last decade, standing at 83.2 years old as of 2018.

Regions full of life: developed Asia and the Latin Arch

There seems to be a pattern as to where in the world people’s lives tend to be longer. As can be seen in the most recent data, Hong Kong topped the list of the countries with the longest life expectancy at 85 years old. Other developed Asian countries can be found on this list, Japan with a life expectancy of approximately 84 years old and Singapore with 83 years old. Similarly, along with Spain, France, and Italy both featured a very high life expectancy. The latest studies show that people that were born in these Mediterranean countries had an expected life length of roughly 83 years at birth.

Ageing: a common problem across the continent

Data related to age in Spain essentially behave in a similar fashion as the rest of its European counterparts, whose population is also slowly but surely getting older. This will not come as a surprise since Spain has one of the highest life expectancies at birth in the world and the lowest European fertility rate, which stood at 1.34 children per woman according to the latest reports.
