Life expectancy in Glasgow is the lowest in Scotland for both men and women as the country’s figures dropped to roughly the same values they stood at a decade ago.

Provisional data released by the National Records of Scotland (NRS) shows male lifeexpectancy in Scotland was 76.52 between 2020 and 2022. In 2010 to 2012, the value stood at 76.51.

Meanwhile, life expectancy for women in 2020 to 22 was 80.73 years – slightly lower than the age was in 2010 to 2012 at 80.75.

The data also suggested large differences in life expectancy at birth depending on what council area people live in. Male life expectancy in Glasgow City was placed at 72.9 years, while men born in East Dunbartonshire and East Renfrewshire have a life expectancy of 79.9 years – a difference of seven years.

It is also the third period in a row that life expectancy for both men and women has fallen in Scotland from the most recent highs of 77.1 and 81.1 in the years 2017-2019, respectively.
