Nice Stats from the grave, we are happy to know about

Expected life time if you are 51, and still alive

Currently the average life time in the deadabase is 68.2033

But if you could make it to 51, then you are expected to last much longer: 77.5356

But if you could make it to 56, then you are expected to last much longer: 79.0831

And if you could make it to 60, then you are expected to last even much more: 80.2878

Actually, it appears that you spare about one quarter per year lived

The job that makes you last longer

This is the occupation you should go for to live longer than your neighbour

Category "Religious" might be there because Popes certainly introduce a bias.

Evolution of life expectancy through time

It is not cool, but I have to admit that politcians are right. Life expectancy seems to increase.

WWII Is likely to be the cause of the observable decreasing of life expectancy during the 40's and 50's.
