World life expectancy, 1950-2100
This graph shows worldwide life expectancy at birth, averaged for both genders and all nations, from 1950 to 2100 under a UN "medium" variant scenario.
Landmarks include the ages of 50 (1957), 60 (1973), 70 (2008) and 80 (2072).
There is considerable variation between countries. This graph is simply the global average.
The future projection is based on current trends – ignoring potential disruptions, or radical medical breakthroughs such as a cure for aging.
