The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) collects and disseminates the nation’s official vital statistics through the National Vital Statistics System.
NCHS published the first-ever provisional life expectancy estimates for the year 2020 (1,2). Life
expectancy estimates presented in this report are based on provisional mortality data for 2021 and final data for 2019 and 2020. Provisional data are early estimates based on death certificates received, processed, and coded but not finalized by NCHS. These estimates are considered provisional because death certificate information may be revised, and additional death certificates may be received until approximately six months after the end of the year.
In 2021, life expectancy at birth was 76.1 years, declining by 0.9 years from 77.0 in 2020. Life expectancy at birth for males in 2021 was 73.2 years, representing a decline of 1.0 years from 74.2 years in 2020. For females, life expectancy declined to 79.1 years, decreasing 0.8 years from
79.9 years in 2020. See the life expectancy trends below.
Here is the same data over the past three years, starting with 2021, broken down by race. Notice the dramatic difference between races. Though the report does not provide reasons, most of the differences are cultural and access to healthcare services.
The Useless CDC provided some further analysis to show some of the negative and positive causes that affected the Life Expectancy numbers. Notice that Covid caused the most negative causes and influenza and pneumonia the least – i.e., Covid replaced many other reasons for death.
These charts are just a summary of the Useless CDC report. You can click here to learn more detail.
One would think that these life expectancies would return to the trend line now that the Covid “pandemic” is over. However, other factors may not let that happen.
- Long-term effects of Covid.
- Long-term effects of Covid vaccines.
- Challenging economic recovery may inhibit the ability of some to obtain health care services.
- Long-term effects of lengthy lockdowns and extensive use of face masks.
We may not have fully understood the effects of these and other factors and how they may affect future life expectancy numbers.
