Singapore is the country with the highest life expectancy in the world, according to a new report. The southeast Asian country clocks an average life expectancy of 74.2 years. In second place is Japan, which averages 73.1 years.
The annual World Economic Forum (WEF) Global Competitiveness Report looks at 98 indicators across 140 countries to determine the overall ranking.
It uses surveys as well as official government and statistical data to organise the findings into 12 pillars, including health, skills, financial system, infrastructure, and institutions.
The WEF also lists countries by health life expectancy — the “number of years that a newborn can expect to live in good health, taking into account mortality and disability,” according to data from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, Global Burden of Disease 2017.
