New scientific information about longevity is being published all the time. Our aim is to ensure the information on this website is up to date and scientifically correct. We welcome your advice about any additional information you believe is reliable and relevant.

The SHAPE estimate of your longevity is based on the information we have at present, including the current Australian Life Tables based on the regular Australian Census of Population and Housing. Please understand that we cannot guarantee this is correct for you. There are many factors outside your control and ours that could affect your longevity (such as accidents and the onset of life-threatening diseases). The SHAPE framework is designed to help you to better understand and manage your potential longevity - it doesn't guarantee it!

Please discuss with your health advisers any issues that you feel could significantly affect your longevity as estimated by SHAPE.
