Life Expectancy is Rising

Over the past century life expectancy has increased dramatically. In 1915, the average life expectancy for men was 52.5 years and 56.8 for women. In 2015, these increased to 76.9 for men and 81.5 for women, an increase of over 24 years!(www.amac.us) Worldwide, we see life expectancy also rising, and is now 69 years, or 10 years below that in the US (WSJ, 9/24/15).
