Women are more likely to claim they are in poor health than men, new research has indicated.
However, according to the report, Population Trends, females are less likely to die than men who suffer from the same illnesses, reports The Daily Express.
To reach the conclusion, boffins studied the 2001 Census and found that women aged 35 to 74 who said they were unwell were more likely to be alive five years later than men who also said they were in poor health.
Women were more likely than men to report that they were in "not good" or "fairly good" health.
The research was done by the Office of National Statistics.
