Life expectancy

Aren’t we all curious how old we are going to be? And in which country people tend to get really old?

The World Health Organization has published their 2015 data about life expectancy. Life expectancy equals the average number of years a person born in a given country expected to live if mortality rates at each age were to remain steady in the future. In my plot I have differentiated in country and sex. As you probably know, woman tend to get older than man, one of the reasons for this is that man take more risks in general. In Japan, this difference is about 6 years!
