Socioeconomic differences

There are many socioeconomic factors that play a role in the development of life expectancy, such as smoking, obesity, education and income.

The results of this research can provide policymakers with new insights so that the life expectancy of high-risk groups can be improved and the population can lead a healthier life into old age.

The research results will be published on this page.
