Male Longevity

Volume 447: debated on Thursday 15 June 2006

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what average male longevity was at age 65 in each parliamentary constituency at the last date for which figures are available. (77139)

The information requested falls within the responsibility of the National Statistician who has been asked to reply.

Letter from Colin Mowl, dated 15 June 2006:

The National Statistician has been asked to reply to your recent question concerning what the average male longevity at 65 was in each parliamentary constituency at the last date for which figures are available. I am replying in her absence. (77139)

Figures on life expectancy at different ages are derived from the life tables, calculated using data in both mortality and populations. The figures requested cannot be provided for parliamentary constituencies as population estimates are not available. Results for local authorities in England and Wales can be provided however. A table containing these figures for male life expectancy at age 65 for 2002-04 (the most recent period available) has been placed in the House of Commons Library.
