The first issue of the Longevity Bulletin looks at some national statistics to see what is projected for future longevity in the populations of selected countries.

Forecasts of how long the population may live are important because they inform government’s long-term forecasts of the cost of public pensions and other planning assumptions for an ageing society. Insurance companies and pension providers also need forecasts of the cost of annuity and other products, based on the population of their policyholders or members.
