This is also said when historical times are discussed; however, though infant mortality is an important factor in average life expectancy, it's not the whole thing. Still in the 18th and 19th century, it was by no means unusual for people to die in their 40s or 50s, with some ill-defined cause scribbled into the registry. When the Bismarck government (around 1890?) established old age pension for industrial workers, retirement age was 60. Few reached it, and still fewer enjoyed their pensions for an appreciable time.
