We’re living longer but the pay-gap and mental health are still cause for concern

Europeans are living longer but the increase in their life expectancy has slowed since 2010, according to a study undertaken by the OECD and supported by the European Commission.

The State of Health in the EU Cycle report, updated every two years, has identified mental health and the health gap between rich and poor as two areas where there remains a particular need for improvement.

The study compares medical data from across all EU countries as well as Norway, Switzerland, Iceland and Turkey. An interactive country-by-country guide shows which are performing above and below the EU average.
