Life expectancy figures are normally calculated for a three year period, to provide large enough numbers to ensure accuracy. Figures are available up to 2003-2005.
Information on life expectancy at birth for ranked local authority areas for the latest period is available from the General Register Office for Scotland’s website through the following link: http://www.gro-scotland.gov.uk/statistics/library/life-expectancy/le2003-05/list-of-tables.html.
Although not ranked, figures for earlier years are also available from this web page.
Information is not available for life expectancy at birth in each ward, because of the small size of the populations involved.
