According to Danish academics, despite having a lower life expectancy than women, men have a "substantial possibility" of outliving women.
According to researchers, life expectancy is frequently misinterpreted as implying that "men do not live as long as women" because it is a "simplistic metric."
Their study, published in the journal BMJ Open, examined data on men's and women's lifespans in 199 countries spanning nearly two centuries.
According to the researchers, men had a 25 to 50 percent chance of outliving women.
According to their findings, large differences in life expectancy conceal a significant overlap in the longevity of men and women.
Despite the fact that men have a lower life expectancy than women and die at a younger age, men are more likely to outlive women.
These findings refute the widely held belief that "men do not live as long as women" and show a more nuanced disparity between female and male lifespans.
