Dutch Living Longer Than Expected

The life expectancy of the Dutch population has increased much more than initially forecast, the Actuarial Society (AG) has suggested.
The AG said men born between 2002 and 2007 are now likely to live almost four months longer – to up to almost 77 on average – compared to the recognised prognosis.

Whereas the forecasted age of women born in the same period was 81 years and one month, the observed rise is exceeding this by approximately three months, the AG said, adding that the observed age rise applies to all age cohorts.

I expect to see many more stories like this in coming years.
