Figures are based on deaths registered and mid-year population estimates, aggregated over 3 consecutive years.
Figures exclude deaths of non-residents.
Life expectancy increased in all English regions between 1991-93 and 2012-14, but the increase was most rapid in London. Consequently, London now has the highest newborn life expectancy for girls (84.2 years), while the north east has the lowest (81.7 years).
