UAE nationals live longer than other Gulf citizens

Filed on September 27, 2004

ABU DHABI — ‘May God prolong your life’ is often expressed as a good wish between people in the Gulf region. This wish applies truly to UAE nationals, whose life-span ranges between 74 for men and 76 for women, as mentioned by the council’s executive bureau for ministers of health in the AGCC.

Qatar ranks second, whose citizens live approximately up to 74 years, followed by Bahrain, Oman and Saudi Arabia.

Last on the list comes Yemen with a life-span of just 62 years. People suffering from old age in the UAE don’t exceed 1 per cent, whereas in KSA, it is 3.1 per cent. The death rate here is also the lowest.
