According to a recent study, 40% of men outlive women

That girls Durable Men are one of the statements that have been considered true for years. However, this idea is a Myth, according to new research. That’s it Men They can be a 50% more likely to survive than womenEspecially those Marriage and with Academic training or university degree.

Researchers at University of Southern Denmark, In Odense, two out of five men in the world live longer than women They shot down an argument Long life span Naturally between the sexes. In this sense, the led group Marie-Pierre Bergeron-Boucher has just released a new method for analysis Gender differences In old age In a special issue BMJOpen.

Researchers at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense have debunked the argument for a natural longevity gap between the sexes.

Life expectancy refers to the average life expectancy of older people. However, statistical dispersion is neglected; That is, how much individual data points deviate from the mean. In most countries, male life expectancy is increasing, and boys are dying more than girls.

Instead of the mean value, the research team calculated Probability that a A man lives longer than a woman. To do this, scientists He randomly selected the death dates of a man and a woman from large data sets and observed which of the two was older.. The sum of the comparisons resulted in a kind of probability Life for men All over the world. The data was around 40 percent Calculated globally.

As a result of the aggregate comparisons, a sort of probability of survival for men around the world is /

It would be misleading to suggest that men are fundamentally disadvantaged by differences in life expectancy Bergeron-Boucher says. Although Men’s life expectancy is generally shorter than women’sAnd this Male mortality rate Generally will be Highest in all agesMales are significantly more likely than females. These findings challenge the common perception that men do not live as long as women and reveal more subtle inequalities in life expectancy between men.”.

But also chance of survival Calculated for Men Not easily explained: with a value of 50 percent, maybe Gender-related inequalities. In India, girls die more often than boys, but the female mortality rate is lower from adolescence onwards, resulting in a relatively even chance of survival.

"Men who are married or have a college degree tend to live longer than women who are unmarried or without a high school diploma.

Also, nothing is said about the number Public health protection. For example, in West Africa, almost one in two men outlive one woman, but life expectancy is less than 60 years.. So while the new measure is useful for examining gender differences, these complex relationships can’t be boiled down to a single number.

“The Gender differences On top of that Survival Often identified by comparison Life expectancyHe explained that it summarizes life expectancy rather than years lived. We use a statistical technique called survival that measures the probability that an individual from an area with a high mortality rate will outlive a counterpart from an area with a low rate.”.

Therefore, this study has implications for public health interventions in addition to underestimating the fact of interest. “We show that certain subpopulations of men have a higher probability, more than 50 percent higher than women. The Men What are they? Wedding Or have one College degree tends to to survive at Women That No Is that so? Wedding Or not one High School Certificate”, he concluded. According to the experts in their document, the data allow for the refocusing of public policies that provide fertile alternatives to the population.
