From US CDC, NVSS, March 11, 2021
Objectives—This report presents complete period life tables for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia by sex based on age-specific death rates in 2018.
Methods—Data used to prepare the 2018 state-specific life tables include 2018 final mortality statistics; July 1, 2018 population estimates based on the 2010 decennial census; and 2018 Medicare data for persons aged 66–99. The methodology used to estimate the state-specific life tables is the same as that used to estimate the 2018 national life tables, with some modifications.
Results—Among the 50 states and the District of Columbia, Hawaii had the highest life expectancy at birth, 81.0 years in 2018, and West Virginia had the lowest, 74.4 years. Life expectancy at age 65 ranged from 17.5 years in Kentucky to 21.1 years in Hawaii. Life expectancy at birth was higher for females in all states and the District of Columbia. The difference in life expectancy between females and males ranged from 3.8 years in Utah to 6.2 years in New Mexico.
