Abstract

We are at a time of global demographic transformation that will have an impact on all areas of our society. The extension of life expectancy and, therefore, of the longevity of the world's population, is one of the consequences of this phenomenon.

Mercedes Ayuso and Jorge Bravo focus their article on the inequality caused by the increase in life expectancy and reflect on the metrics that evaluate longevity in different areas of research, with the aim of designing appropriate policies to avoid the inequality that exists around life expectancy between socioeconomic groups.
