Life expectancy at birth in the Far East in 2020 was 69,2 years. This is 2,39 years less than in Russia as a whole.

As IAA EastRussia was informed in FANU "Vostokgosplan", the indicator differs significantly in the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District. Thus, the highest level of life expectancy for both women and men is 71,1 years in Yakutia. The lowest level was found in Chukotka - 65,8 years.

The gap between the life expectancy of men and women in Russia and in the Far Eastern Federal District is narrowing: in 2020 it was ten years, in 2019 - 11 years.

The retirement age for Far Easterners dropped last year, including due to the pandemic. The value of survival after retirement in the Far East is lower than the average for Russia: by 1,94 years for women and 2,46 years for men.

According to Vostokgosplan experts, the pension reform does not take into account the existing territorial disparities in life expectancy of the population in the Far Eastern Federal District.
