Life expectancy for women

This indicator shows the life expectancy for women at birth, at age 15, at age 50 and at age 65, respectively, in the Nordic region. Life expectancy at birth for women is defined as how long, on average, a newborn girl can expect to live, if current death rates do not change. However, the actual age-specific death rate of any particular birth cohort cannot be known in advance. If rates are falling, actual life spans will be higher than life expectancy calculated using current death rates. Data covers Denmark, the Faroe Islands, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Åland, as well as the European Union (EU28) and the Euroarea (EA19).
