This report contains life tables for the Māori, non-Māori and total New Zealand populations. These complete life tables are based on the mortality experience for the three-year period 2000–02 and provide standard measures for monitoring changes in mortality and survivorship patterns and the progress in prolonging life.
The report includes several other topics of interest. These include analysis of causes of death, summary information on the longevity and mortality experience of different subnational areas of New Zealand, and explanation of the methods of derivation of these life tables. The report also consolidates earlier life table results.
All life tables presented in this report are period life tables. They show the mortality experience of a hypothetical group of newborn babies, assuming that they experience the observed mortality rates of the given period throughout their lives.
