Work out YOUR LIFE expectancy

So how long have we got and how will lifestyle factors influence our fate? It’s time to crunch the numbers

Surprisingly, we can make a reasonable guess about how many years we can expect. he table below shows the latest igures from the Oice of National Statistics for average lifespans in the UK. As you can see, when you’re born you could expect to live to 79 if you’re male, and 83 if you’re female.

These figures stay much the same until you reach the age of 35–40. After that, they start going up – this is because, if you’ve managed to survive that far, your chances of having a longer life increase. If you actually make it to the average age of death, you can expect a further nine years if you’re a man, or eight years if you’re a woman. Even when you get to the age of 100, you can still expect, on average, a couple more years on earth.
