Note about Complete Life Tables 2021 and Covid-19 pandemic

Like in the previous release of the Complete Life Tables occurred last year, the data published today (November 25, 2022) by the IBGE represent the mortality indicators in Brazil in the absence of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Therefore, had Brazil not lived a mortality crisis in 2021, life expectancy at birth would be 77.0 years for the entire population, with an increase of exact 2 months and 26 days in relation to the values estimated for the year of 2020 (76.8 years). For the male population, life expectancy at birth would be 73.6 years and, for women, 80.5 years in 2021.

Complying with Presidential Decree no. 3,266, of November 29, 1999, the IBGE publishes the Complete Life Tables in the Official Gazette since that year. These tables come from a projection based on census data, information available on death records and knowledge about the Epidemiological and Demographic Transition of the Brazilian population over time.

Adopted by the IBGE since 1991, this methodology is recommended by international cooperation organizations and it is recognized by users of our demographic data, like public offices and academic institutions.

The projections start from 2010 data in the edition released today, year of the last Population Census. A new set of life tables will also be built after the release of the results of the 2022 Population Census, when a more precise estimate of the population exposed to the risk of dying, as well as of the deaths registered in the last 12 years will be available.

The Complete Life Tables can be accessed here and the technical note about this release is here.
