The average life expectancy of a Vietnamese person is now 72.8 years, Dr. Duong Quoc Trong, Director of the General Department of Population and Family Planning announced at a meeting in Hanoi on December 20.

The average life expectancy of a Vietnamese person is now 72.8 years, but the age that most people experience a healthy life is only up to 66

He said this at the meeting held to mark Vietnam’s Population Day, which is December 26.


Although the life span rose to 72.8 years old, the age that most people experience a healthy life is only up to 66. Vietnam is rank 116 over 182 nations in the world in the field.


However, most of the population is still faced with many challenges, such as low quality living and the imbalance of gender issues. During the year, 1.24 million babies were born, 4 percent less than in the same period last year.


In addition, the gender ratio in Vietnam was 106 boys per 103 girls. But now this has changed to 111 boys per 103 girls.


The number of the third child was 122,600, which is a 6 per cent decrease over the same period last year. Nevertheless, only nine provinces reported a third child, meanwhile 40 over 63 provinces, state that the newly born babies have decreased dramatically.


The factors that determine whether a population grows or falls includes rates of reproduction and survival of people and the longevity of the citizens.
