UK Gender Life Expectancy Gap / Narrows to less than four years

The life expectancy age gap between men and women has narrowed to less than four years, new figures revealed today.

The idea that wives always live longer than their husbands has been gradually eroded, with men less likely to have manual jobs and women taking on the stress of work.

Both babies of both sexes born today will live much longer than their parents born three decades ago.

Babies born from 2010 to 2012 can now expect to live to 79 if they are boys and 82.8 if they are girls.

This is up from 1980-82 when the figures stood at 71 for boys and 77 for girls.

It means the gap between life expectancy at birth between boys and girls has narrowed from six years to under four years in a generation.
