The overall world average for life expectancy in 2014 is 71 years - 68.5 for males and 73.5 for females.

The life expectancy for males was 34.5 years and that of females was 36.5, but this isn't an accurate reflection of how long Americans of that time lived because this factors in the then high child mortality rate of up to 15% and, excluding this the life expectancy would've been in the upper fifties.
