Life expectancy at birth (years), by sex: earliest and latest years of life table data. Each data point represents a single population, either for a registry territory, or for a racial/ethnic sub-population within a given territory. This figure shows the change in life expectancy at birth, by sex, between the earliest and latest years for which life table data were submitted, in the general population of 279 participating registries, covering 327 populations. The diagonal represents ‘no change’ between the first and last years: data points above the diagonal denote an increase in life expectancy for that population
