Life expectancy is the average number of additional years of life remaining to a person at a specified age if current age-specific mortality experience does not change during the person’s lifetime.
LIFE EXPECTANCY AT BIRTH - 1992-2002
Recent reductions in the death rates at the older ages, especially from diseases of the circulatory system, have led to improvements in life expectancy of adults. In 1900, life expectancy for males aged 65 years was 11.2 years, compared with 16.7 years in 2002. For women aged 65 years, life expectancy in 1900 was 12.0 years, compared with 20.0 years in 2002.
