U.S. Census Bureau Releases National Population Projections Reports on Life Expectancy and Alternative Migration Scenarios

Press Release Number CB20-TPS.05

Feb. 13, 2020 — Today the U.S. Census Bureau released a new report on projected life expectancy from 1960 to 2060. The Living Longer: Historical and Projected Life Expectancy in the United States: 1960 to 2060 report uses mortality by nativity data from the 2017 National Population Projections series to provide nativity-specific life expectancy projections.

In addition, input files (fertility rates, mortality rates, life expectancy, and survivorship ratios) from the 2017 National Population Projections series were released for the first time. Minor updates to text, tables and graphics were made to the Demographic Turning Points for the United States: Population Projections for 2020 to 2060 report, released last year. The changes reflect corrections made in August 2018.

A Changing Nation: Population Projections under Alternative Migration Scenarios report was also released today, along with complementary tables and datasets. This is the 14th iteration of population projections using alternative migration scenarios since 1948.
