Life Expectancy at birth for males and females, in years.
Note: These may be large files.
The figures quoted here are period life expectancies at birth for a given time period, which is an estimate of the average number of years a new born baby would survive if he/she experienced the particular area's age specific mortality rates for that time period throughout his/her life (with no allowance for any actual or projected future changes in mortality).
The figures are based on deaths and population data for a 3 year period (3 years is needed to provide large enough numbers to ensure that the figures published in this report are sufficiently robust). All figures are published by the National Records of Scotland (NRS).
