The average number of years that a person of a given age can expect to live, assuming that age-specific mortality levels remain constant (i.e. the rates observed for the period under review). Thus, there are figures for mean life expectancy for each age.

Some data points are provisional or estimated for the Eurostat sources, please refer to Eurostat (table: [demo_mlexpec]) for more information.

Faroe Islands

The annual figures are fluctuating due to the relatively small population.The life expectancy figure are therefore smoothed to obtain a standardised figure showing the actual trend. The smoothing is done using the 'lowess' method (LOcally WEighted Scatterplot Smoothing). Statistics Faroe Islands has based the calculation on the number of days lived between two birthdays, which means that the period usually ranges between two calendar years, e.g. 1990-1991, 2019-2020, etc. For example, for the year 2020 shown here actually is the period 2019-2020.

Greenland

Two year averages i.e., 2019 = 2018-2019.

Finland

Includes Åland.

Åland

From 2005, five year averages i.e., 2015 = 2011-2015. Data from Åland is also included in the data from Finland.
