U.S. Small-area Life Expectancy Estimates Project - USALEEP

The U.S. Small-area Life Expectancy Estimates Project (USALEEP) is a partnership of NCHS, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), and the National Association for Public Health Statistics and Information Systems (NAPHSIS) to produce a new measure of health for where you live.  The USALEEP project produced estimates of life expectancy at birth—the average number of years a person can expect to live—for most of the census tracts in the United States for the period 2010-2015.

 

Methods

The abridged period life tables calculated to estimate census-tract life expectancy at birth for the period 2010-2015 are based on a methodology developed for this project and described in the report:

Data and Documentation Files

Life Expectancy Files contain geographic identifiers, life expectancy at birth for 2010-2015, and flags noting whether the estimates were based exclusively on observed data, a combination of observed and predicted values, or exclusively predicted values.

Abridged Period Life Table Files contain geographic identifiers and the abridged, period life tables for 2010-2015 that were calculated to generate the life expectancy estimates for each census tract.
