Life expectancy went up fractionally for both 0-year-old male and female children in 2011. The preliminary figure of the life expectancy of 0-year-olds was for men 77.2 and for women 83.5 years. The life expectancy of 0-year-olds indicates the number of years a person aged 0 would live provided the rate of mortality remains unchanged. The grown life expectancy of men and women at age 0 proves that the increase in the number of deaths from years 2005–2009 has been caused by grown numbers of aged men and women, and the ageing of the population, rather than by risen rate of mortality.
