Abstract

An exploratory analysis based on 120 countnes indicates that more widely available general econonuc development indicators can predict a large share of variations between countnes with respect to longevity (an overaII indicator of nutritional and health state and of the share of the population that is malnourished) The successful predictors include GNP per caput, calorie availability to requirements ratio, and the share of agncultural population in total population. Those vanables explain 87 percent of the variation between cmmtnes with respect to hfe eA-pectation at birth.
