A NEW tool can tell you how likely you are to live to 100.
The online calculator from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) allows you to type in your age and select your gender before telling you how long you might live.
The interactive life expectancy calculator is based on Office for National Statistics
Maps show: Average life expectancy for men (top) and women (bottom) at birth in regions across the UK. Hover over your area to show how long people live to on average.
For example, the average 30-year-old woman can expect to reach her 88th birthday and has a one in 10 chance of making it to her centenary.
In contrast, 50-year-old men are only likely to survive another 34 years to 84.
Meanwhile, separate interactive maps also show Britons’ lives are 11 years shorter in the worst area of the country for life expectancy compared to the best.
Men in Glasgow live up to 73 years old on average, the ONS figures show.
For comparison, the figure was nearly 85 in Westminster, London, the area of the country with the highest life expectancy in Britain — 16 per cent higher.
The difference was less pronounced in women, who live up to 78 on average in Glasgow, compared to 88 in Kensington and Chelsea, which is also in the capital.
The shocking disparities come after separate figures yesterday showed Britain now ranks 29th in the world for life expectancy, down from seventh in 1952.
The USA was the only country in the G7 that improved less in that time.
A Royal Society of Medicine report said the gap between the rich and poor has widened in the past 70 years, bringing down public health.
And the ONS figures show regional disparities could also be to blame.
Some 174 out of 370 regions in the country’s life expectancies fell below the average 79.3 years for men in 2018 to 2020.
Women lived to 83 on average during the same period, but 170 regions had lower life expectancies.
After Glasgow, the worst life expectancy in Britain was in Dundee, also in Scotland, where men lived less than 74 years on average.
It was followed by Blackpool (74.1), West Dunbartonshire (74.1) and Inverclyde (74.3).
The same five regions made up the worst six for women as well, with the addition of North Lanarkshire.
Professor Martin McKee, from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said: “Income inequalities rose greatly in the UK during and after the 1980s.
“That rise also saw an increase in the variation in life expectancy between different social groups.
“One reason why the overall increase in life expectancy has been so sluggish in the UK is that in recent years it has fallen for poorer groups.”
