Footnotes

Life expectancy at birth. The gap indicates the difference in years between men an women measured as the gap towards women (women tend to live longer). The life expectanxcy measures the average number of years that a person can expect to live, assuming that the 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.
Calculated based on LIFE01.

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).
Åland
Five year averages i.e. 2015=2011-2015.
