Last week’s survey asked about longevity in your family. The responses revealed some interesting results. 69% had a mother who lived longer than her father, but only 57% had a father who lived longer than his father. 59% had a mother lived longer than their mother while 48% of fathers lived longer than their father. These results mirror information that women tend to live longer than men. The full results are as follows:

 

69%, My mother lived to a greater age than her father
59%, My mother lived to a greater age than her mother
57%, My father lived to a greater age than his father
48%, My father lived to a greater age than his mother

37%, My paternal grandfather lived to a greater age than my father
33%, My maternal grandmother lived to a greater age than my mother
