In 1993 the expectation of life in the United States apparently declined slightly. Newborns could expect, on average, to live 75.4 years; for baby boys the figure was 72.0 years and for girls 78.7 years. Each of these values represents a decline of 0.3 years from the 1992 provisional expectancies prepared by the National Center for Health Statistics, and(More)
Today's newly married couples can more than ever expect to celebrate their silver and even golden wedding anniversaries. In comparison with their counterparts at the turn of the century, the chances of joint survival for 50 years for the typical bride and groom in 1995 were 3 1/4 times higher, despite increasing divorce rates and due in large part to(More)
In 1997 life expectancy for all persons combined rose to a new record high of 76.4 years. Additionally, average future lifetime for newborn girls and boys also established new peaks--79.3 years and 73.4 years, respectively. For girls the 1997 value surpassed the previous high of 79.1 years recorded in 1992 and 1996 while for boys new peaks have been(More)
Although slowing recently, the population of Canada has rapidly increased since 1986. These gains reversed a 25-year trend of progressively smaller intercensal increases, which were brought about by low levels of net in-migration and declining birth rates. Ontario, Canada's most populous province, is projected to have just over 11 million residents in 1995,(More)
Decreases, if any, in mortality from all forms of cancer combined have been relatively small in the past few decades. In fact, until recently, the U.S. age-adjusted cancer mortality rates have trended slowly upward, while other countries showed mixed results. Roughly half of the 15 countries studied experienced higher cancer death rates. Analysis of U.S.(More)
Life expectancy for the U.S. total population was essentially unchanged in 1995 from the prior year. However, analysis by sex reveals that males experienced longevity enhancements across the age spectrum. In fact, average remaining future lifetime for men established new record highs or remained at peak levels at every age. In 1995 expectation of life at(More)
The latest state data just released from the National Center for Health Statistics reveal that men and women living in Hawaii can expect, on the average, to live longer than those residing in any other state. During 1989-91 expectation of life at birth for all residents of the United States was 71.8 for boys and 78.8 for girls. In Hawaii, however, average(More)
Between 1990 and 2020 the number of Americans is projected to increase by approximately 31 percent or to 325.9 million. However, gains among the various racial groups will differ markedly. The Asian-American population is expected to more than double while both whites and African Americans will have gains of less than 50 percent. During this period the(More)
In 1996 life expectancy in the United States rose to a record high of 75.9 years for all persons combined. A new peak was also recorded among newborn boys--72.8 years--while average future lifetime for infant girls increased to 79.0 years--0.1 year shy of the 1992 record of 79.1 years. In recent years longevity gains among males have outpaced those for(More)
1998 was another banner year for U.S. life expectancy. Average remaining future lifetime for all newborns established a new high of 76.6 years. A new peak was also recorded for infant boys--73.7 years--but longevity for baby girls fell by 0.1 years from the 1997 record level of 79.4 years. As a result, the sex differential in expectation of life at birth(More)
