The following downloadable files provide historical and projected period life tables by single year of age, gender, and calendar year for years 1900 through 2095. A period life table represents the historical or projected mortality experience within a given year. Actuarial Study Number 120
provides additional information about this and other mortality concepts. Section IV, which begins on page 3 of that study, contains definitions of life table functions, and also contains a brief discussion of life tables in general.
