Notes: Life expectancy is the expected number of years of life remaining at a given age for a hypothetical individual born in a given year. For example, a male born in the year 2012-13 could expect to live 79.2 years if they experienced, throughout their life, the mortality rates of 2012-13 at each age. Complete life tables (single year of age) life tables were used in the calculation. Deaths used are from a census year (July 1 to June 30) period; population data are July 1 estimates. Prepared by Alberta Treasury Board and Finance. Data Source: Statistics Canada.
