OECD says Spanish life expectancy second best in the world
Spain officially has the second life expectancy in the world according the the OECD. Currently there is 150,000 people over the age of 100 years.
The report shows, that the average person born in Spain today can expect to live to the ripe old age of 83.3. That places residents just behind people in Japan, who live slightly longer at 83.7.
With figures like these, the report uses data going back to 2014, it is no wonder more people are deciding to move to Spain. The report predicts that there will be over 300,000 people living beyond 100 years in the next 50 years. The report shows that the average life expectancy for the UK and Ireland is 81.4 years.
