Letter from Colin Mowl, dated 25 October 2007:

The National Statistician has been asked to reply to your recent question asking what the life expectancy at (a) birth, (b) 18, (c) 40 and (d) over 60 years is for (i) men and (ii) women in each local authority area. (160491)

Life expectancies at 18, 40 and 60 years at local authority level are not available. Life expectancies at birth for males and females at local authority level are published annually by ONS, based on three-year rolling averages. Figures for the periods 1991-93 to 2003-05 are available on the National Statistics website at:

Figures on life expectancy at birth and at 65 years at local authority level for 2004-06 will be published on the National Statistics website in late November 2007.
