Abstract


The study aimed to detect the expectations of life expectancy of women since birth according to the diversity of the communities and to examine the most important social, cultural, economic, and demographic determinants. These have been identified as: the proportion of annual population increase, rates of infant mortality, the rate of the crude death, the rate of population density per cubic meter, the population of the state, the period during which the population doubles, the total fertility rate, the rate of birth control use, the level of individual income, the proportion of youth in the community (population less than 15 years), and the rate of urbanization. The study relied on the annual global data for 242 countries provided by the United Nations for all countries in the world which is known as the World Population Data Sheet. The study found that females live longer than males, and variables such as infant mortality, the proportion of youth in a community, the rate of crude mortality, total fertility of women and rate, and the relative use of birth control methods in the community, all play an influential role in determining the levels of the woman’s life expectancy.
