Questions raised over theory that women outlive men in new Danish study

Summary by Ground News
The academics said that rather than simply looking at life expectancy, it is better to compare lifespan data between sexes and countries. They examined data from almost 200 countries over two centuries and found that men have a "substantial chance of outliving females." The study found that "males who are married or have a university degree tend to outlive females who are unmarried or do not have a high school diploma."
