Yes Walter, but that's because we have healthcare for all in Australia!!

"Average life expectancy in Australia hits new record high!!
The latest figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics - life expectancy hit a new record high in 2015.

Babies born in 2015 expected to live to 80.4 years if they are male & 84.5 years if they are female.
The male & female combined life expectancy at birth estimate for Australia was 82.4 years.”

USA expects 76 years for males & 81 years for females.
UK expects 79 years for males & 83 years for females.
New Zealand expects 80 years & 84 years respectively.
China’s life expectancy is 74 for males & 77 for females.
Russia, life expectancy is just 63 years for males & 75 for females.
