Statistical Evaluation Of The Influence Of Determining Factors Of Life Expectancy
AbstractThe aim of this paper is to reach the following objectives: to identify the determinants that have significant influence on life expectancy for European countries, in 2007; to measure the significance level of the influence of the determinants on life expectancy; to classify the European countries according to life expectancy and its determining factors. The research is based on the regression method and cluster analysis. The results show that the determining factors of life expectancy, in 2007, for European coun- tries, are: education, gender, health, earnings, and marital status. The influence of these factors is different for life expectancy of male population and for life expectancy of female population. The simi- larities of factors’ influence create clusters of countries.
