Although life expectancy has risen significantly for the past few years, it is evident that it is likely to fall again in the near future. This will be as a result of an increase in demand which will result to overdependence on technology (industries) which will pollute the air.

It means that individual life expectancies should be obtained in order to obtain their mean or average.

In normal cases, when life expectancy of a country increases, it means that the country is growing or the health care services provided to the people or the economic conditions of the people are growing.
