According to the 2000 Population Census,
Chinese males have a surprisingly high life expectancy - ranging
between 76 years in Shanghai and 62 years in Tibet. Obviously, life
expectancy is correlated highly with economic development, as males in
highly developed coastal provinces have much higher life expectancy
than in interior or western provinces.
