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 68.3429

But if you could make it to 51, then you are expected to last much longer: 77.6136

But if you could make it to 56, then you are expected to last much longer: 79.1524

And if you could make it to 60, then you are expected to last even much more: 80.3543

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

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.
