China's average life expectancy at birth in 2005-2010 as compared to Europe and all other countries of the world (larger figure)

Source: United Nations, Department of Economic and Social Affairs, Population Division (2011): World Population Prospects, the 2010 Revision. New York. See: www.unpopulation.org
Notes: Due to limitation of space country names were abbreviated. China stands for People's Republic of China, USA stands for United States of America.

This figure displays the average life expectancy at birth for both sexes (dots), as well as for males and females (high-low lines).

China has reached a high level of average life expectancy, as compared with other developing countries.

Europe's average life expectancy (including all 48 European countries in this geographical region) is significantly lower than the average life expectancy of the United Sates of America due to the very low life expectancy in many Eastern European countries and the Russian Federation.
India still has a low average life expectancy that is more consistent with a poor developing country than with a transition economy.
According to the latest estimates of the United Nations Population Division, 39 countries had a higher average life expectancy at birth than the United States of America in the period 2005-2010. This includes many highly developed Asian and European countries, such as Japan, Switzerland, Australia, Italy, Iceland, France, Sweden, Israel, Singapore, Canada, Spain, Norway, Austria and others.
