Australian Life Tables 2010‑12

This publication presents the Australian Life Tables 2010‑12, which are based on the mortality of male and female Australians over the three calendar years centred on the 2011 Census of Population and Housing.

The report discusses the major features of the 2010‑12 Life Tables and reviews developments in mortality, both since the previous Australian Life Tables and over the longer term. A number of measures of longevity are considered and the historic declines in mortality rates are used to estimate mortality improvement factors. The impact of mortality improvement on life expectancies is considered under two improvement scenarios. The lifespan distribution is also considered.

This discussion is followed by the Tables themselves, together with the technical notes on their construction. The appendices include supporting information referred to in the text.
