This report describes life expectancy in Jersey for the period 2017-2019 and compares this to historical data to look at trends over time as well as to neighbouring jurisdictions.
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 (85.0 years).
On average, a 65 year old male could expect to live for 19.3 more years, and a 65 year old female could expect to live for 22.1 more years.
