life expectancy in France “without disability” estimated between 10 and 11 years at 65 years old

2023-12-22 11:42:00

At 65, women can expect to live 11.8 years without disability, that is to say without being limited in the activities of daily life, and men 10.2 years, according to a Drees study published Friday . In France, “life expectancy at birth is increasing regularly, even if it has been affected by the Covid-19 epidemic and has not yet returned to its 2019 value, before the epidemic », underlines the Directorate of Studies and Statistics of the social ministries.

“But these additional years of life are not all necessarily lived “in good health”,” adds Drees, which therefore publishes each year an indicator measuring life expectancy in good health. This disability-free life expectancy at age 65 has increased since 2008 by one year and nine months for women and by one year and six months for men, details the Drees.
