This is of special concern considering women live longer than men, as illustrated in the next figure. This chart depicts the increasing life expectancy at birth in the USA. Why women live longer than men is not perfectly understood. For instance, men do engage in riskier behaviors than women, reducing their life expectancy. [18] Men are also more "successful" when attempting suicide, which increases the rate of death among men of suicide. [18] Another factor that may contribute to the greater life expectancy of women is the different types of jobs men and women tend to have during their lifetimes. [19] Other biological factors likely play a role, including greater heart health among women, [20] though how much they contribute to the greater longevity of women is not entirely clear. [21] Finally, recent studies and meta analyses reveal that two primary elements in this relationship include men's occupational risk taking combined with women's greater willingness to seek healthcare Intractable Conflicts: Socio-Psychological Foundations and Dynamics.
