Ive done some searching and i have yet to find an answer. Does anyone know or have an idea at what the average lifespan of baseliners is in EvE, discounting the obvious short lifespan of capsuleer crews Pirate

"However, the life spans of individuals has grown greatly. While in pre-spaceflight civilizations the average person could expect to live into their 80s or 90s should they avoid other causes of death, the average citizen of New Eden can regularly reach their mid-120s. Certain individuals can live even longer, thanks to implants, cloning, anti-agathic drugs, or other life-extension treatments."

On average, a regular human with a normal standard of living in any of the empires can expect to live around 120-140 years.

Holders and the like can live for a little longer, given their privileged access to healthcare and high cost cybernetics and advanced medical care.

The quoted figure of 500 years relates to those who hold the throne in the Empire.

Heideran VII reigned for over 300 years before passing away in August YC105 (2003). His cause of death was Turit Diseas given his advanced age.

It's not uncommon at all for most regular citizens to still be alive and in good health at the prime of their life when they celebrate their 100th birthday.

Cool

Awesome, that's actually exactly what I was looking for! Much Thanks to both Falcon and Samira!

So 100 is the new 70?

How much of a class disparity is there in life expectancy? Assuming they avoid accidents, would an unskilled worker that spends most of their life employed in low-paid jobs usually make 100? 120?

Do the fairly wealthy but not mega-rich people (let's say someone that owns ten investment properties, if housing is still the biggest expense most people incur) make it to 160 often?
