*The baseline figures are the % of the national population. The dataset shows the population by five-year age group. For the 2011 Census, a usual resident of the UK is anyone who, on census day 2011, was in the UK and had stayed or intended to stay in the UK for a period of 12 months or more, or had a permanent UK address and was outside the UK and intended to be outside the UK for less than 12 months. The age of a person is derived from their date of birth. It is their age in years on their last birthday up to and including census day 2011.

Life expectancy at birth for small areas. Mortality data by sex and age group were extracted from annual files supplied to the public health observatories (PHOs) by the Office for National Statistics (ONS). These were deaths registered in the calendar years 2005-09. Deaths were allocated to the deceased's lower layer super output area (LSOA) of usual residence using the August 2010 version of the National Statistics Postcode Directory. Population data are experimental mid-year population estimates for LSOAs, by sex and single year of age, supplied by ONS to PHOs. Counts by single year of age from 2005-09 were aggregated into the age groups required for the calculation of LE (<1, 1-4, 5-9, 10-14, ... 80-84, 85+).
