Australian Life expectancy Stats

Definitions

  • 95 percent range: 95% range.
  • 95% range: 95% range.
  • Centenarians per 100,000 people: Amount of centenarians per 100,000 people in each country. Results were compiled by the UN, using estimates from 1950-2008.
  • Female: Life expectancy at birth indicates the number of years a newborn infant would live if prevailing patterns of mortality at the time of its birth were to stay the same throughout its life.
  • Female healthy years: Number of years of life while 'healthy', as defined by the OECD. Estimates for 2001. See source for details.
  • Healthy years: Estimated number of years of life while healthy, as defined by the OECD. Estimates for 2001. See source for details.
  • Inequality adjusted index: Inequality-adjusted Human Development Index.
  • Life expectancy at birth > Total: Life expectancy measures how long on average people would live based on a given set of age-specific death rates. However, the actual age-specific death rates of any particular birth cohort cannot be known in advance. If age-specific death rates are falling (as has been the case over the past decades in OECD countries), actual life spans will be higher than life expectancy calculated with current death rates.
  • Male: Life expectancy at birth indicates the number of years a newborn infant would live if prevailing patterns of mortality at the time of its birth were to stay the same throughout its life.
  • Male healthy years: Number of years of life while 'healthy', as defined by the OECD. Estimates for 2001. See the source for details.
  • Men: Life expectancy for men.
  • Women: Life expectancy for women.
  • Years of potential life lost from premature death > Females: Female YPLL. Years lost to premature death.

  • Years of potential life lost from premature death > Males: Male YPLL.
