Life Expectancy of the Advantaged
Notes from a recent meeting of the International Actuaries' Mortality group, revealed statistics from the UK Office of National Statistics on differences in Life Expectancy between people in most deprived (Decile 10) and least deprived(Decile 1) Geographic Areas. This difference is 9.1 years for Males and 6.8 years for Females. These figures are based on Life Expectancy measured from birth and 2010-12 data.
If we take medians as the average of Deciles 5 and 6, this puts most advantaged area Males at 3.3yrs above average Life Expectancy and Females at 2.6 years above average Life Expectancy figures.
