Projections of life expectancy are widely used in medicine, actuarial practice, and in the medicolegal and insurance fields.

For individuals considered to have average future survival, nationally-derived life expectancy tables are available, referred to as the Ogden Tables. In the United Kingdom, updated tables (the 8th edition) were published in July 2020.
