U.S. State Life Tables, 2020
From NCHS, August 23, 2022
Objectives—This report presents complete period life tables for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia (D.C.) by sex based on age-specific death rates in 2020.
Methods—Data used to prepare the 2020 state-specific life tables include: 2020 final mortality statistics; July 1, 2020, population estimates based on the 2010 decennial census; and 2020 Medicare data for people aged 66–99. The methodology used to estimate the state-specific life tables is the same as that used to estimate the 2020 national life tables, with some modifications.
Results—Among the 50 states and D.C., Hawaii had the highest life expectancy at birth, 80.7 years in 2020, and Mississippi had the lowest, 71.9 years. From 2019 to 2020, life expectancy declined for all 50 states and D.C., from 0.2 years for Hawaii to 3.0 years for New York. In 2020, life expectancy at age 65 ranged from 16.1 years in Mississippi to 21.0 years in Hawaii. Life expectancy at birth was higher for females in all states and D.C. The difference in life expectancy between females and males ranged from 3.9 years in Utah to 7.0 years in D.C.
