  • By Barbara Blatt Kalben
  • SOA Monograph M–LI01–1
  • Everyone knows it. Many have been intrigued and puzzled by it. Females live longer then males, in virtually all societies, at all ages and even across species. But why? The phenomenon has been noted through the centuries and now, actuary Barbara Blatt Kalben has completed research on the nature and causes of this phenomenon. Her research documents an underlying consistent pattern of factors contributing to mortality differential between males and females. This research paper attempts to synthesize the evidence supporting and refuting the hypothesis for the sex mortality differential. Evidence supports both the biological/genetic and the social/cultural/environmental/behavioral schools of hypotheses, as well as interactions between the two, but the determining component may revolve around the differing chromosomes and hormones between the sexes.
