There are several reasons why living in Romania is a bad idea now. A survey conducted by Econtext lists the average life expectancy in various European countries, with worrying results for Romanians.The average life expectancy of Europeans ranges between 73.4 and 82.2 years with the inhabitants of Western Europe living longer than easterners. The longest life expectancy is in Spain, whose population has a life expectancy of 82.2 years. Romanians (both men and women) live almost 73 years and five months. Romanians are the Europeans with the shortest life expectancy of the entire European Union.In general, women live longer than men, something that is also present in Europe. In average, European women live 81 years and nine months, while EU men live 75 years and six months. As for women, the longest life expectancy is encountered in Spain and France (85 years and three months). On the other hand, Romanian women rank last. Unfortunately, the average life expectancy of Romanian women is of 77 years and 3 months. Eight years less than in Spain. Among the male population, Swedes come first, with an average 79.6 years, followed by Italians (79 years and four months). Romanian men hold the last place, with just 69.6 years.
