Population aging is one of the major social and economic challenges of the 21st century. Major causes for population aging are reduction in birth rates and rising life expectancy. The purpose of this paper is to present the causes which affect the life expectancy of the world population. We wanted to know what factors affect the length of life expectancy; we focused specifically on the factor of expected years of schooling. Based on empirical data, we confirmed that there is a statistically significant relationship between the expected years of schooling and life expectancy at birth. Individuals with higher education earn more money and have better jobs are more aware of how to avoid the risk of the disease and how to live longer and more comfortable life.
