Word of the Week: Part 23
Have you ever heard, read, or used the word longevity? Do you know what this word means? ❓❓❓
According to Oxford Dictionary, the definition of longevity is:
“long life; the fact of lasting a long time.”
Longevity is a noun that describes a time period during which something exists or lasts. According to Merriam-Webster, longevity is a long duration of individual life. ⏰
This word is sometimes used as a synonym for “life expectancy” in demography.
However, the term longevity is sometimes meant to refer only to especially long-lived members of a population, whereas life expectancy is always defined statistically as the average number of years remaining at a given age.
For example, a population’s life expectancy at birth is the same as the average age at death for all people born in the same year. 👶➡👴👵
Longevity is best thought of as a term for general audiences meaning ‘typical length of life’ and specific statistical definitions should be clarified when necessary.
If you live longer than the average person, then you could be said to have longevity. Striving for your maximum potential age is the goal of longevity. 🔜
We wish you all happiness, health, and longevity! 😊🙏
