Italy: average age of the population 2018, by region The population of Italy is getting older every year. In 2018, the average age of the Italian population was 45.2 years, about two years more than the average age registered in 2011. However, the age differs significantly depending on the region. In 2018, the “oldest” inhabitants of the Italian peninsula lived in the region of Liguria (average age 48.8 years), whereas the youngest inhabited Campania (42.4 years on average).
Women live longer than men

The difference in the average age of the population can be observed not only on a regional basis, but also between genders. In 2017, Italian women were on average roughly three years older than men. When it comes to the life expectancy, studies confirm the longevity of Italian women - females in Italy are expected to live on average five years longer than men.

The Old Continent
