This latest publication summarises the National Records of Scotland’s life expectancy figures for the years 2016-2018 for areas within Scotland, including council areas, NHS Board areas and breakdowns by deprivation, rurality and Scottish Parliamentary constituencies.
The publication also includes healthy life expectancy figures for 2016-2018 for council areas, NHS health boards and breakdowns by deprivation and rurality.
Including previous publications on administrative areas and special areas within Scotland.
Please note: Scotland level life expectancy within these publications are a by-product of the process used to calculate smaller area life expectancy. They will differ from the definitive Scotland level life expectancy figures produced by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), available in table 1 and table 2 on our Scottish National Life Tables page. This is because slightly different processes are used to calculate the figures, ONS create national life tables using single year of age whereas we create abridged life tables using grouped ages.
