N. Koreans' life expectancy ranks 151st in world

The average North Korean can expect to live 69.2 years, placing the nation 151st (out of 221 countries)  in the world in terms of life expectancy, recent U.S. government data showed. Meanwhile South Koreans live 79.3 years on average, placing the nation 41st in the world in terms of life expectancy. 

North Korea

total population: 69.2 years 

male: 65.34 years 
female: 73.24 years (2012 est.)

South Korea

total population: 79.3 years 

male: 76.12 years 
female: 82.7 years (2012 est.)

But I doubt that North Koreans actually live 69.2 years on average. Like China, the most statistical data on North Korea is unreliable...
