    • Life expectancy is an estimate of the average number of years that a person could expect to live if the mortality rates of the given geographical area remain constant throughout their lifetime. However, it should not be regarded as a prediction of the number of years that the person can actually expect to live, both because death rates are likely to change and because that person is unlikely to live in the same geographical area throughout their life.

      Changes in life expectancy, in Warwickshire, are examined in greater detail in the recently published Director of Public Health Annual Report 2013 which is available online from:
