How life expectancy has changed

In the middle of the 20th century, in 1950, life expectancy in most of our planet did not exceed 60 years — with the exception of Europe (and even then not all), the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and several of the most developed countries of Latin America … Record at 72 belonged to Iceland and Norway

Now (bottom map — data for 2015) the situation has changed markedly. Countries have emerged — and quite a few countries — in which life expectancy has exceeded 80 years (84 in Japan, 80+ in most countries in Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand). Here, by the way, the success of Korea (South, of course) draws attention: from 47 years in 1950, life expectancy there increased to 82 years in 2015. Many countries in Asia and Africa (especially North) have shown impressive growth rates: in some places life expectancy has increased twice!

In Russia in 2015 it was 71 years
