a detailed description of the age-specific mortality, survival and expectation of life of a population

a hypothetical construct with age specific death rates as input (the 'M' column) and remaining years of life left, or life expectancy, at various ages as an important output (the 'e' column)

a kind of bookkeeping system that ecologists often use to keep track of stage-specific mortality in the populations they study

a schedule of mortality for each cohort (age group) of individuals in the population

a standard statistical device which provides a detailed description of the mortality conditions prevailing in a population during a given period

A table giving age-specific mortality rates, number of survivors, and relative sizes of age groups in a stationary population.

A statistical table that follows a hypothetical cohort of 100,000 persons born at the same time as they progress through successive ages, with the cohort reduced from one age to the next according to a set of death rates by age until all persons eventually die.

Statistical tool typically used to portray expectation of life at various ages. Also provides information on numbers of individuals who survive to various ages, median age at death, age-specific death rates, and the probability of dying at certain ages.

A tabular display of life expectancy and probability of dying at each age (or age group) for a given population, according to the age-specific death rates prevailing at that time. The life table gives an organized, complete picture of a population's mortality.

A table summarizing statistics of a population, such as survival and reproduction, all broken down according to age classes.

A table detailing the life expectancy and probability of dying at each age for a given population.

tabulation of mortality factors acting on an insect population, which displays the relative importance of each factor and permits estimation of survival; when coupled with a knowledge of fecundity, can be used to estimate the size of the succeeding generation.

A table showing the number of lives that would survive to successive ages on given assumptions as to the rate of mortality.

A table showing, for a group of equal-aged individuals, the proportion still alive at different times in the future and the number of offspring they produce during each time interval.

In actuarial science, a life table (also called a mortality table or actuarial table) is a table which shows, for a person at each age, what the probability is that they die before their next birthday.
