Babies born today will find it easy to reach their centenary.

According to the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute (NIDI), half of baby girls and a third of baby boys born today will live to their 100th year. This forecast shows that life expectancy is improving.

By NIDI’s calculations, girls born today will reach an average age of 96, while boys will reach an average age of 92. In their latest figures, only 1% of those born 100 years ago are still alive.

The institute has considered health factors in their calculation, including obesity. However, a spokesman of the institution said ‘People will become ill but we don’t expect many of them to die.’
