Life expectancy for Cumbria men and women revealed

MEN in Cumbria can expect to live for 78.8 years, and women for 82.4 years, according to the Office for National Statistics.

Both figures are below the national average. Across England, life expectancy is 79.2 years for men and 83 years for women.

The data also shows the proportion of the average person’s lifespan spent in “very good” or “good health”.

For men in Cumbria this is 61.9 years, and for women 65.9 years.

Have your say

another set of useless info figures,so should every body move south.
All my mates here have gone in their sixties or early seventies and most of them lived and worked in the s.east all their lives.
Also lot of good lads I played rugby with in Barrow in the fifties and sixties have gone,so where you live does not make one jot of difference.
I suppose some academic who produced those figures got his Masters Degree on that subject.
