Average life expectancy continues to rise, although perhaps not completely as one might expect, as far as the specific countries involved. For example, it's expected the average female life expectancy for a female child born in South Korea in 2030 will be 90 years, but around 83 years in the USA.
90 years of age was typically considered the upper limit for average human lifespan, although this new data may cause that to be revisited. The average female life expectancy in the USA in 1900 was approx. 48 years, males were 46 years.
The study, published in [British Medical Journal] The Lancet and funded by the UK Medical Research Council, revealed all nations in the study can expect to see an increase in life expectancy by 2030.Science Daily
