Welcome to My Longevity

We become more different from each other over time. Understanding yourself better is the key to making the best of the rest of your life. The first step is to understand how your three stages evolve from midlife, how they add up to your longevity and what you can do to influence this. Since 2008 My Longevity has shown over 200,000 people how to manage the opportunities and challenges of living better and longer. Simple lifespan numbers from the Australian Life Tables have little value for you. See why here.

AUSTRALIAN LIFE TABLES

For a large group of people of the same age, it is possible to estimate their average life expectancy. These calculations are usually done after each Census and are called Life Tables.

Because people are increasingly different from each other as they age, there are problems with these numbers:

  • They are averages and don't take account of individual variations

  • They don't take account of the ongoing trend of people living longer

Over the last twenty years or so there has been an explosion in well-researched information about what affects personal longevity. We developed the SHAPE Analyser to take account of how this can affect individuals and what their own future might look like, building on the basic data in the Life Tables.

New information is constantly being published. We regularly update the SHAPE Analyser and website to take account of these developments, including when the Life Tables change.

MORE ABOUT LONGEVITY

Just 200 years ago the average baby did not live beyond 40. Babies born today are on average expected to live beyond age 80. This growth reflects what we have learnt about longevity and how our society has made use of this - through better education and communications, infrastructure, better laws and governance and greater wealth to invest in living standards. While most people realise this remarkable change is ongoing, few realise what it can mean for them personally.

Most people are not average

If we took at a very large group of 65 year olds in Australia, we know on average how long they will survive. This figure shows how many are likely to die, in groups of five years. The average survival is 21 years and sits inside the dark blue column which includes less than a quarter of the age 65 group. So, most people are not ‘average’. At 65, men live about three years less than women.

Longevity Infographic

Understanding where each of us might be within our own age group - and why - helps us to focus on our own longevity, what we might do about it and greatly improve our quality of life.

The SHAPE Analyser helps you to do just that.
