Abstract Aim:Investigate the impact of plateauing life expectancy on deprivation deciles in BirminghamIntroductionLife expectancy at birth is a ubiquitous statistic utilised to measure the average number of years that an individual is expected to live based on current mortality rates. Recent national and local life expectancy analysis have concluded the slowing of increases in life expectancy.MethodsUsing localised mortality figures, three year life expectancies were calculated for a ten year period (2004-2006 and 2014-2016). Changes in life expectancy by gender and localised deprivation deciles were computed to determine changes over the time period.ResultsMale slope of index between 2004/06 (8.56) and 2014/16 (8.53) has remained relatively static, however, the female slope of index for the same period has increased 2004/06 (5.45) and 2014/16 (6.54). In terms of deciles the latest data for 2014/16 shows that 3 deciles for males (most deprived) have shown a decrease since 2012/14, however, for the same time period, 5 deciles (deprived and affluent) have decreased for women.DiscussionChanges in mortality trends are a cause of concern and require further investigation by localised areas. This initial analysis has highlighted that changes have affected men in the most deprived areas and females in both deprived and affluent areas. The implications of these findings will influence and have ramifications on the current and future health and social care systems within Birmingham.
