Why are they different?

The most important factor is the fact that India has the second highest population in the world. It supports nearly one sixth of the world's population and only occupies 2.4% of land on earth. The average life expectancy for the Indian female is 73 and 68 for men. It is estimated that India will overtake the population of China by 2030. Since so many people live in India, it makes it hard for individuals to acquire basic resources. There is a higher chance of getting diseases. France is the third most populated country in Europe. In France, the male is expected to live 79 years and the female is expected to live for 84 years. French women have the second highest life expectancy in the world.
