Abstract:
In contemporary societies females almost universally outlive males. In Western countries the difference between female and male life expectancy at birth was above 6 years during the 1990s. Although genetic/biological factors may play a role, it appears that social and cultural influences on female and male behaviour are largely responsible for the extent of differences in mortality between two sexes. Among Israeli Jews the difference between female and male life expectancy at birth has been below 4 years-the lowest in the developed world.
