Projected life expectancy at birth and at age 65
Period-based life expectancies. This is a measure of the average number of years a person would live from a given age, if he or she experienced the particular area’s age-specific mortality rates for that time period throughout his or her life. This measure makes no allowance for any future actual or projected changes in mortality. In practice, a population’s death rates are likely to change in the future, so period-based life expectancy does not therefore give the number of years someone would actually expect to live. Also, people may live in other areas for at least some part of their lives.
