Low life expectancy in Scotland10th August 2010
The Scottish Registrar General has released the 2009 population report which shows, despite improvements, life expectancy in Scotland is far behind other countries in the EU.
A woman in Scotland will on average live for five fewer years than a woman living in an EU country with the highest life expectancy rates, while a man can expect to live four years less. Scotland scores higher for life expectancy than only three Eastern European countries: Bulgaria, Hungary and Slovakia.
