Abstract

Longevity has become a source of research since in recent decades there has been an exponential increase in the number of years of life. There are several authors and researches that affect it and several hypotheses and variables that aim to become the main axis of the causes and circumstances that influence aging. Surely it is a confluence of influential factors in it. Factors that range from the most biological to the most cultural and cognitive. A bibliographic effort indicates that, although several variables are cited, none affects the variable level of studies and longevity. It is at this point where we will focus our research. Our objective will be to analyze the difference in years of life and longevity in people with studies and without studies. Our main contribution is to demonstrate that in the groups of 60 and over, having a higher level of education means living longer. The sample used is the totality of the Spanish population according to the most recent INE (National Statistics Institute) census. The main conclusions that are reached are that people, both men and women who have more levels of education live from more years
