The French island of Corsica is in the lead. And several regions of Bulgaria turned out to be outsiders.

According to Eurostat, in 2020, life expectancy at birth in the EU was 80.4 years. This indicator was 5.7 years higher in women (83.2) than in men (77.5). Compared to 2019, life expectancy decreased by 0.9 years due to the sudden increase in mortality due to the coronavirus pandemic.
