Summary

​This report contains updated figures for life expectancy and healthy life expectancy 2016-2018

Period life expectancy (LE) at a given age for an area is the average number of years a person would live, if he or she experienced the particular area’s age-specific mortality rates for that time period throughout his or her life.

  • New-born males in Jersey could expect to live, on average, for 80.8 years if the current age-specific mortality rates applied to them throughout their life. New-born females could expect to live, on average, for nearly four years longer (84.6 years).
  • On average, a 65 year old male could expect to live for 19.4 more years, and a 65 year old female could expect to live for 21.8 more years.


Healthy life expectancy (HLE) is an extension of LE that combines mortality data with general health status data to produce estimates of the span of life that a person can expect to live in ‘very good’ or ‘good’ health.

  • New-born males in Jersey could expect to live, on average, in 'very good' or 'good' health for 66.4 years. New born females could expect to live, on average, for 70.2 years in 'very good' or 'good' health.
