American doctors and psychologists have come to the conclusion that at the age of 60 a person reaches the peak of his emotional and mental potential.

As you know, at the end of last year, 2022, or rather on November 15, the Earth's population reached an impressive figure - 8 billion people. Network analyst Vladimir Osetrov decided to find out exactly what this figure is, having carefully studied the data published in international sociological publications. That's what he got, if you count these 8 billion for 100%.

Of these:

11% are located in Europe;

5% are located in North America;

9% - in South America;

15% - in Africa;

60% are located in Asia;

49% live in villages;

51% - in cities;




12% speak Chinese:

5% in Spanish;

5% in English;

3% speak Arabic;

3% in Hindi;

3% in Bengali;

3% in Portuguese;

2% in Russian;

2% in Japanese;

62% are in another language.




33% are Christians

22% are Muslims

14% are Hindus

7% are Buddhists

12% - other religions

12% have no religious beliefs


Standard of living


77% have housing:

23% have nowhere to live;

21% of people overeat;

63% can eat as much as they want;

15% of people are malnourished.

The daily cost of living for 48% of people is less than $2.

87% of people have access to clean drinking water;

13% either do not have access to clean drinking water.

75% have mobile phones;

25% do not.

30% have internet access;

70% do not have the conditions to access the Internet.

7% received higher education;

93% of the person did not attend college or university.

83% can read;

17% of people are illiterate.

26% live less than 14 years

66% died between the ages of 15 and 64.

8% of people are over 65 years old.

Total: less than 7% of the world's population simultaneously have housing, fully eat and drink clean water, have a mobile phone and Internet access, and have graduated from college or university.

And only 8% can live to 65 years.

To whom old age is a joy

Moreover, American doctors and psychologists, based on sociological data, have made some more interesting conclusions, which are published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

They found that only at the age of 60 a person reaches the peak of his emotional and mental potential, and this continues until the age of 80. So:

▪️ The most productive age of a person is from 60 to 70 years;

The 2nd most productive stage of a person is the age from 70 to 80 years;

▪️ The 3rd stage in terms of productivity is 50 and 60 years.

▪️ Before that, the person has not yet reached his peak.

The average age of Nobel Prize laureates is 62 years;

The average age of the presidents of the 100 largest companies in the world is 63 years;

The average age of pastors of the 100 largest churches in the USA is 71 years;

The average age of Popes is 76 years.

That is, in fact, the best and most productive years of a person fall on the age of 60 to 80 years.

  Therefore, if you are 60, 70 or 80 years old, you are at the best level of your life.

However, with a little clarification: this applies to life in civilized countries with high incomes and medicine, so Russian pensioners can hardly be included in this category.
