In this release

Tables containing data on life expectancy (ex), probability of death (qx) and numbers of persons surviving (lx) from the 2012-based National Population Projections are provided in this update. These tables contain historic and projected figures for 1981 to 2062 on a period and cohort basis from life tables calculated using observed and projected deaths and population estimates and projections.

The 2012-based tables for the United Kingdom, Great Britain and Scotland have been revised to take account of revisions to the 2002 to 2010 mid-year population estimates for Scotland published by National Records of Scotland on 17 December 2013. The impact of these revisions on the tables is small. Only figures for 2010 and earlier are affected; no revisions have been made to actual or projected mortality data for 2011 and later years.

These tables were first released on the 11 December 2013.
