Vietnam: Average life span increases to 73


The average life expectancy of Vietnamese people has increased to 73 from 72.8 in 2010, according to the General Department of the Population and Family Planning.


Vietnam's average life span has increased by 33 years in the last 50 years. It was only 40 in 1960. At the same time, the world average life span has increased only 21 years, from 48 in 1960 to 69 in 2011.


The healthy life span of Vietnamese is only 66, the department announced on December 1. Though it is lower than the average life expectancy, the healthy life span has increased strongly from 2009, when it was only 58.4
