As some of our loyal readers will remember, we used to make Friday’s all about infographics here at Young Academic. Well with all of our student news, festival updates and course guides, we kind of put these on the backburner. We do listen to you guys though and many of you had said you wanted to see a return to Infographic Fridays, so we have duly obliged. We have a couple of intriguing graphics for you today…

The first of these infographics is from our friends at TK Encasa, who are one of the nation’s leading suppliers of platform lifts. it discusses some of the fascinating statistics around the fact that more and more people are  living to the ripe old age of 100 and what this means. Better living conditions, stats from the Office for National Statistics, geography and even genetics are mentioned, but we will stop giving the game away and let you take a look for yourselves! Happy reading…
