Life Tables \ Life Expectancy

Interim Life Tables are produced annually to provide period expectation of life statistics. Period life expectancy is the average number of additional years a person can be expected to live if he or she experiences the age-specific mortality rates of the given area and time period for the rest of his or her life. Data are available for expectancy at birth and current age and relate to 2010-2012.
