all live longer. But how many of us will live to 100?
The Department of Work and Pensions have published a report detailing the life expectancy in 2011 and comparison of generations of 20 years, 50 and 80 of age. The data looks at 20 years three times more likely to reach 100 as their grandparents, and two times more likely than their parents.
Then a girl born in 2011 has one chance in three of those living at his 100th birthday, a child has one chance in four. However, compared to a baby born in 1931, 2011 children are nearly eight times more likely to become centenarians.The predictions of the Office for National Statistics estimate the probability of reaching the 100 good look at your age now and the year of his birth. They show that by 2066 there will be more than half a million people in the UK for 100 years or more.
The aging of the population of Britain will have an impact on everything from pensions to the National Health Service. Pensions Minister Steve Webb said:
spectacular speed at which life expectancy is changing means that we must radically rethink our perception of our lives later ... We simply can not look at the experience of our retired grandparents as a model for ours. We will live longer, we will save more
So what does this mean? Key figures of the data shows the following:
. The average probability of a 20-years to reach 100 is 23%, but women age 20 have a probability of 26.6% - in contrast with the male 19.5%
. The 50-years in 2011 have the opportunity to see one of the year 2061 14.2% (17% women, 11.4% of men). More
ten years reduces your chances of 2.2%, and by the time they reach 70, the average Briton will be 10.4%
. Seniors from 83 to 84 are now less likely to reach 100 to any age group - 7.2%. Beyond these figures begin to look up, with a credit of 99 years, a lucky 67.% East through its 100th anniversary
