217. Life Expectancy

Description

This Sociology Factsheet will look at how overall life expectancy has changed over time, along with considerations such as the difference in life expectancy between males and females, geographical inequalities, how the UK compares with other countries, and possible factors in the more recent slowdown in mortality improvements in the UK.

The Factsheet includes Exam Hints to help you to use your knowledge to gain maximum marks, while the activities give you the opportunity to apply what you have learned and will help you develop your skills in this area.

Words in bold are explained in the glossary and a reference list is included at the end of the Factsheet.

The examiner will expect you to be able to:
1. Demonstrate your understanding of life expectancy.
2. Use the terms relating to life expectancy appropriately in your exam answers.
3. Demonstrate your understanding of how life expectancy differs between different groups in society.
4. Explain and critically evaluate the reasons for the changes in life expectancy.
