  • Table: 84-537-X
    Description:

    This electronic publication contains life tables comprising life expectancy and related estimates by age and sex for Canada, the provinces and territories. Detailed estimates (by single year of age) have been produced for Canada and all of the provinces, except Prince Edward Island, based on two types of complete life tables: three-year estimates (for periods of consecutive three years) and single-year estimates. Aggregated estimates (by five-year age group) have been produced for Prince Edward Island and the three territories separately based on abridged life tables (three-year estimates).

    Description:

    This table contains mortality indicators by sex for Canada and all provinces except Prince Edward Island. These indicators are derived from three-year complete life tables. Mortality indicators derived from single-year life tables are also available (table 13-10-0837). For Prince Edward Island, Yukon, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut, mortality indicators derived from three-year abridged life tables are available (table 13-10-0140).

    Description:

    This study seeks to measure the reduction in life expectancy at birth as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic, both nationally and in affected provinces. In Canada, deaths attributed to COVID-19 contribute to a projected reduction in life expectancy at birth of 0.41 years in 2020. Estimates of life expectancy in 2020, which will be available at a later date, will show both the direct and indirect effects of the pandemic.

    Description:

    This study uses the 1996 and 2011 Canadian Census Health and Environment Cohorts (CanCHECs), with a five-year mortality follow-up, to estimate the life expectancy (LE) of the household population. It also incorporates information from two national health surveys to estimate health-adjusted life expectancy (HALE). The objectives of this study are to examine LE, HALE and disparities in LE and HALE in the 1996 and 2011 cohorts at ages 25 and 65 for men and women, according to highest level of educational attainment and household income quintile; to examine these disparities according to the combination of education and income in the 2011 cohort; and to examine how education- and income-related disparities in LE and HALE changed over time.

    Description:

    In Canada, estimating the life expectancy of Indigenous populations is methodologically challenging since death registrations do not usually collect information on whether the deceased was Indigenous. For the first time in Canada, a series of census-mortality linked datasets has been created that can be used to estimate trends in life expectancies among Indigenous household populations enumerated by a census. The objectives of this article are to 1) estimate life expectancy for First Nations people, Métis and Inuit at various ages and by sex for 2011, and compare it with that of the non-Indigenous population 2) examine trends in longevity since 1996 for First Nations people, Métis and Inuit and the non-Indigenous population, and estimate whether the disparity between Indigenous populations and the non-Indigenous population has changed over time. In doing so, this study aims to fill an important information gap by providing a national picture of the life expectancy of First Nations people, Métis and Inuit.

    Number of premature and potentially avoidable deaths and premature and potentially avoidable age-standardized mortality rate, by sex, on an annual basis. Premature deaths are those of individuals who are younger than age 75. Avoidable mortality is defined as "untimely deaths that should not occur in the presence of timely and effective health care, including prevention". These data are available at the Canada, Province or territory level.

    Description:

    Life expectancy is the number of years a person would be expected to live, starting from birth (for life expectancy at birth) or at age 65 (for life expectancy at age 65), on the basis of the mortality statistics for a given observation period. Life expectancy is a widely used indicator of the health of a population. Life expectancy measures quantity rather than quality of life.

    Description:

    Life expectancy at birth is decomposed by selected causes of death, including certain types of cancers, infectious diseases, circulatory diseases, respiratory diseases, and external causes. External causes include drug poisoning deaths, falls and transportation accidents. Changes in mortality rates for a given cause of death change over time and contribute to the overall change in life expectancy.

    Description:

    Over the past century, life expectancy at birth in Canada has risen substantially. However, these gains in the quantity of life say little about gains in the quality of life. This study calculates health-adjusted life expectancy (HALE), an indicator of quality of life, for the combined household and institutional population every four years from 1994/1995 to 2015. Trends over time in health status, life expectancy, and HALE are examined. The study also discusses how HALE has changed relative to life expectancy.
