Life Expectancy in Brazil - IBGE

Life expectancy reached 73.5 years in Brazil in 2010, says IBGE
Search Mortality Tables was released on Thursday (1).
In 2009 , the number was 73.2 years.

Men reach younger ages than women. According to the Institute, the life expectancy for men was 69.73 years in 2010. For women, life expectancy at birth was 77.32 years to come, a difference of seven years, seven months and two days.
Still according to the IBGE, men are 4.5 more likely to die in youth than women. The measurement is based on the male excess mortality, which is the relationship between the likelihood of death in men and women, aged or age groups.

Male excess mortality peaked at 22 years of age, when the chance of a man dying was 4.5 times higher than that of a woman. In 2000, in the same age, the likelihood of male deaths reached 4.0 times the female.
As age increases, this difference decreases, but at age 70, the chance of a dying man is still more than 1.5 times the chance of a woman the same age.
