The remaining life expectancy is the number of years someone of this age can expect to live if the age-specific mortality risks in the survey year remain the same. For example, the graph shows that in 2013 an average 40 year-old man could expect to live for another 40.9 years if the age-specific mortality risks observed in 2013 remain the same for the rest of his life.
