The datasets contain one record per country or region. They contain the following variables:
Numerical Location Code (3-digit codes following ISO 3166-1 numeric standard) - see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1_numeric.
Name of country or region (following ISO 3166 official short names in English - see https://www.iso.org/obp/ui/#search/code/ and United Nations Multilingual Terminology Database - see http://unterm.un.org).
Life expectancy in various five-year time intervals (i.e., from 1 July in year t to 1 July in year t+5 such as the period 1950-1955 refers to the period 1950.5-1955.5 and the mid of the period is 1953.0). The
e0*proj datasets start at
e0*_supplemental datasets start at
1750-1755. Missing data have
e0F_supplemental contain estimates for female historical e0;
e0M_supplemental contain estimates for male historical e0. The
*_supplemental datasets contain a subset of countries for which data prior 1950 are available. Datasets
e0Fproj contain projections of male and female e0, respectively. Datasets
*95l are the lower bounds of 80 and 95% probability intervals,
*95u are the corresponding upper bounds.
The historical dataset (e0F_supplemental.txt and e0M_supplemental.txt for female and male respectively) for 29 countries or areas covers the period 1750-1950 (including 20 countries with data since at least 1900) is based on a series for 5-year periods from the following sources: (1) University of California at Berkeley (USA), and Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (Germany).
