These Are The 10 Countries Where People Live The Longest

The World Economic Forum (WEF) has ranked the top 10 countries where people live the longest in a recent report titled Global Population Ageing:Peril or Promise?. Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum, wrote in the preface of the report: "In a world in which much change is unpredictable and immediate, global ageing – the unprecedented increase in global population over the age of 60 – is a highly foreseeable long-term trend. It is also, of all global issues, one of the most amenable to risk management in terms of identification, measurement and mitigation of possible consequences. Yet, ageing is widely seen as one of the most significant risks to global prosperity in the decades ahead because of its potentially profound economic, social and political implications. Global ageing, in developed and developing countries alike, will dramatically alter the way that societies and economies work."

The report has ranked these 10 countries where people are dying of old age and where people live the longest.
