Life Expectancy at Scotland Level
This section contains the Scottish National Life Tables and Scottish Decennial Life Tables plus links to relevant historical data.
Information on Healthy Life Expectancy (HLE) is published by the Information and Statistics Division (ISD) of the NHS. HLE is defined as the number of years people can expect to live in good health. The difference between health life expectancy and life expectancy indicates the length of time people can expect to spend in poor health. More information on HLE in Scotland is available on the website of the Scottish Public Health Observatory (ScotPHO).
