[full-text, 63 pages]
Objectives—This report presents complete period life tables for
the United States by race, Hispanic origin, and sex, based on agespecific
death rates in 2010.
Methods—Data used to prepare the 2010 life tables are 2010
final mortality statistics; April 1, 2010 population estimates based
on the 2010 decennial census; and 2010 Medicare data for persons
aged 66-99. The methodology used to estimate the 2010 life tables
was first implemented with data year 2008. The methodology
used to estimate the life tables for the Hispanic population remains
unchanged from that developed for the publication of life tables by
Hispanic origin for data year 2006.
Results—In 2010, the overall expectation of life at birth was
78.7 years. Between 2009 and 2010, life expectancy at birth
increased for all groups considered. Life expectancy increased for
both males (from 76.0 to 76.2) and females (80.9 to 81.0) and for
the white population (78.8 to 78.9), the black population (74.7 to
75.1), the Hispanic population (81.1 to 81.4), the non-Hispanic white
population (78.7 to 78.8), and the non-Hispanic black population
(74.4 to 74.7).
