The World Health Organization (WHO) has recently ranked the Principality of Andorra as the country with the longest life expectancy in the world, thus rising from second place to first since the latest statistics. Andorra is thus in the first position with a life expectancy of 87 years, compared to 84 in Spain and 83 in various countries such as France, Monaco, Japan, Switzerland, Australia, Italy, San Marino and Singapore.
As usual, the data show that women have a longer life expectancy at birth than men. In Andorra, women have a life expectancy at birth of 87 years, while men reach only 84 years.
The neighboring countries are situated with numbers similar to those of the Principality. In France, the life expectancy of women is 85 years, and that of men, 79. On the other hand, the life expectancy of women in Spain is 80 years, and that of men, 86. The life expectancy in Portugal is 84 and 77 years respectively.
