Introduction

Everyone wishes that they could live forever; sadly we haven’t come up with the answer to prolonging life yet. In this lab the goal was to study the ages of people who died in different generations, in order to find out what the life expectancy would be for someone living in that time. This information could be viable proof weather or not people are beginning to live longer. The times that we were interested in were male and female that lived and died before 1920, also male and female that died after 2001. The Death Date and Age at Death were recorded for twenty female and twenty male for each of the centuries. The predictions for this Lab are that Man and Woman who died in the 21st century lived longer than those who lived in the 18th century. We also found that woman would not live as long as men in the 18th century but would live longer than men in the 21st century.

Methods

A cemetery in Naugatuck Connecticut was visited, the date of Birth, Date of Death, and Age at Death from 20 men and woman who died before 1920 were recorded. After this step was completed, the date of Birth, Date of Death, and Age at Death from 20 men and woman who died after 2001 were also recorded. Once this was completed, the information was copied over into excel, graphs were produced and interpreted.
