Average Life Expectancy in Taiwan Hits New High of 80.7 Years in 2018
Posted on 2019-09-11 19:12:13
The average life expectancy in Taiwan hit a new high last year.

The Ministry of the Interior says that number was of 80.7 years, with men and
women averaging a record 77.5 years and 84 years, respectively.

MOI statistics show the average life span in Taiwan has risen steadily over
the past decade, from 78.6 years in 2008 to the new high in 2018.

The ministry attributes the improvement to improved medical services,
enhanced food safety awareness, better quality of life and the growing
popularity of fitness.

Residents in the northern part of Taiwan generally live longer than those in
the south, while those in the west had a longer average life expectancy than
their counterparts in the east.

The average life expectancy of men and women in Taiwan is higher than the
world average, but the MOI says it's lower than in countries such as Japan,
Switzerland, Spain and Singapore.
