Life Expectancy Tables (Abridged Three-Year Life Tables)
These tables show current life expectancy at various ages for Wisconsin's total population and for males and females. They are based on age-specific death rates that occurred during a specified three-year period. The most recent time period shown is 2015-2017.
The life expectancy at birth in 2015-2017 (80.0 years) represents the average number of years that babies born during those years would live if throughout their lives they experienced the age-specific death rates experienced in 2015-2017.
Technical Note: These are "current" as opposed to "generation" life tables. That is, they are based on the age-specific death rates experienced by the population during a given time period, rather than the death rates experienced by a cohort (birth group) as it ages.
