Do girls live longer than boys?


3 Answers

Yes, women tend to live six to eight years longer than men due to a biological advantage and behavior. A few countries in Asia and a couple of countries in South Africa are an exception, with men outliving women.

Women generally live longer than males – on average by six to eight years. This difference is partly due to an inherent biological advantage for the female, but it also reflects behavioural differences between men and women.
