57% of women want to live past 81,
which is the average life expectancy for women.
63% of men would like to live past 77,
which is the average life expectancy for men.
Yet, when it comes to living past 100–
48% say it depends on life quality:
whether or not they’d be able to live independently and…
how much pain they would be in.
29% don’t want to live past 100–period.
22% say that they are down with it.
Notably, people 65 and older–
are more interested than any other group
in living past the average life expectancy–
but are the least open to the idea of living past 100.
