“According to the United Nations (UN) list of nations by life expectancy (which uses data between 2005 and 2010), the United States ranks number 36. The average male and female life expectancy here is 78.3 years. That ties us with Cuba and Denmark. Japan is number one, at 82.6 years. (That, of course was before the earthquake and tsunami.) Spain is number 6, France, 10; Canada, 11; the United Kingdom, 20. You can check it out at the "List of countries by life expectancy" entry in Wikipedia.”
