Notes:

  1. Number of zero (0) cells refers to the number of age groups out of 20 that had no deaths over the five year period.
  2. Due to the dynamic nature of Postal Code boundaries used to geocode deaths, some variability in deaths (and EX(0)) can be attributed to changing postal code boundaries.
  3. Death data used is the average of five year census-year (July 1 to June 30) period deaths by place of residence.
  4. Population is the average of July 1 estimates (e.g., July 1, 1991 and July 1, 1996).
  5. Abridged Life Tables were used in the calculation (20 age groups, ages 0, 1-4, ..., 85-89, 90+).
  6. Life expectancy for regions with 7 or more zero cells have been suppressed (X) due to data quality issues.
  7. Note that where areas have more than 5 'Zero Cells' it may not be reasonable to assume that the calculated life expectancy represents the mortality experience of the region.
  8. Life expectancy from 1997 onwards has been reprocessed in 2018 for consistency.
