    “Our world in data” recently published an article on why women live longer than men and how the difference has changed recently. In the 1800s, there was almost no difference; this increased last century; and now the difference is decreasing again. The causes for the gap are not fully known, but are biological, behavioral, and environmental.

    Probably one of the biggest reasons for the large difference between men and women during the last century was that men smoked more than women.
