Australian Life Tables

These tables help the Government, superannuation entities and insurers plan for what is needed in the future. The Australian Life tables are used to more accurately estimate future cash flows in a wide range of areas, including aged care, pensions, Medicare and superannuation.

This report is released every five years and is based on the mortality of male and female Australians over the three calendar years’ information centred on each Census year.

Hard copies of recent Australian Life Tables can be ordered online. The order forms are available on the publication's page.
