Professors at the University of Pennsylvania have developed a predictive test of your life expectancy based on 400,000 NIH data samples and a short quiz about your lifestyle. Often many will say that they have no interest to find out the length of their lives. But sometimes, knowing the indicative range will allow an individual to plan better, get a better perspective about life and take remedial actions to improve their quality of life as well as their longevity.
In Malaysia, based on the population estimates for 2020, the number of Malaysians aged 60 years and above increased from 3.4 million (2019) to 3.5 million (2020). Thus people aged 60 and above now represent 10.7 per cent of the total population in Malaysia. You can find out more about the life expectancy of Malaysians at the Department of Statistic, Malaysia website.
