The life expectancy of Australians has continued its steady rise with the country now ranked third in the world, up from sixth last year.


New figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) show life expectancy at birth is now 85.4 years for females and 81.3 years for males.


The combined male and female figure is 84.32 years, putting Australia behind only the principality of Monaco, and Japan, according to global data from the United Nations.


ABS director of demography, Emily Walter, said it is the highest ranking the country has achieved.
