The average life expectancy for men in Israel has increased in recent years, surpassing theOECD average by 2 years (81 in Israel compared to the OECD average of 78.3). Among women, life expectancy is evenhigher (84.8 compared to 83.6), with the overall average life expectancy inthe general population standing at 82.9 years, one of the highest in the OECD. This information is derived from a recent OECD report that examined various health indicators of member countries.
Israel is highly ranked concerning the life expectancy of its residents. Official data indicates that there are currently one million people over the age of 65 in Israel, defined as the elderly population. The aging of the Israeli population and the increase in life expectancy are reflected in the fact that more and more Israelis now require daily nursing assistance.
