Here’s some interesting news that’s got everyone in Southern Baja talking: it turns out, women in our region are outliving men, and by quite a margin! The latest report from the National Institute of Statistics has given us a peek into life expectancy trends, and the findings are quite fascinating.
Ladies in Southern Baja are now expected to live, on average, up to 80.1 years. That’s a significant jump from 76.2 years in 2010. It seems like the women here are not just living longer; they’re setting new records! Meanwhile, men are trailing a bit with a life expectancy of 74.1 years, which is still an improvement from 73.5 years a decade ago.
Nationally, women are also leading the longevity race, with an average life expectancy of 78.6 years compared to 72.3 years for men. But get this – only Nuevo Leon, a state in northern Mexico, has a higher average life expectancy at 77.6 years, just nudging past our state.
What’s the secret behind this longevity in Southern Baja, especially for women? Is it the sunny climate, the laid-back lifestyle, or maybe a bit of both? Whatever it is, it’s working! Here’s to good health and long life in Southern Baja. Keep living life to the fullest!
