Death insurance stands out for being a family product. The same policy usually covers several generations of the same family. This is evident by taking a look at the age brackets of the insured.

But it is that, in addition, a third of adolescents and 40 percent of twentysomethings have this protection. A look at the type of municipality where the death insureds reside shows how this product enjoys greater acceptance in municipalities with between 10,000 and 100,000 inhabitants. That is, in large towns and small cities.
