Life Changes

A study by the United Kingdom’s Office for National Statistics shows that men with good jobs live longer. Specifically, the research shows that men in “routine” jobs are nearly three times as likely to die before the age of 64 as men with higher managerial jobs.

You might think this is because managers earn more money than regular workers. While there may be a correlation with income, this research classifies occupations by characteristics. Two characteristics of the managerial jobs are control and security.

So if you want to live longer, get a good job. Get a job that gives you a higher degree of control over your own life and provides you with more security.

Do the two go hand-in-hand?
