Among these insured persons, the gain in longevity has amounted to 4% years since 1946, 10 years since 1936, and 24 years since 1909. In 1B79-1B94, the average lifetime was only 34 yw.rs. The average length of life of the industrial policyholders has increased more rapidly than that of the general population of the United States. In 1909, for example, the longevity of these policyholders was about six years less than that of the population as a whole. Currently, the record for the two groups is about the same.
