Women in South Korea are projected to reach nearly 91 years, while Americans will continue to have one of the lowest life expectancies of any developed country, a new study predicts.

In a new study published in The Lancet, researchers predict that average life expectancy will reach beyond 90 years for South Korean women by 2030. Men there will also see big gains.

A handful of other wealthy countries will get closer to becoming centenarians too, but these improvements won’t be spread evenly. America, in particular, won’t be doing nearly as well against its economic peers.
