Preston curves superimposed from 1960 to 2000.

These show the change with time and evolution of major world economies. Each country is represented by a circle proportionate to its total population. Certain important and well known drops in life expectancy are shown. For example in Russia in 1990 with recovery and in South Africa (yet to recover). The advance of China up the third world (low income) portion of the graph is notable, as is India's. About a GNP of $3500 per person at 2000 prices there is a life expectancy transformation. The relatively flat progress in further gain in life expectancy in first world economies after this as represented by the USA. The big 3 European economies (UK, France and Germany) tend to cluster with the UK having slightly lower life expectancy (till 2000 at least). However like Japan they have better life expectancy than the USA. This is consistent with their societies having more social equity.
