ABSTRACT
The article presents updates about statistics for life expectancy following the 2001 census in Great Britain. The Government's Actuary Department (GAD) will conduct a final revision of the figures for life expectancy from 1980-1982 to 1998-2000. Meanwhile, interim life tables for Great Britain for 1999-2001 have been published at the GAD web site. "Health Statistics Quarterly" will report on life expectancy at birth from 1991 onwards.
