Footnotes

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.

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).
