Life expectancy of Dutch men on the other hand is, as before, higher than life expectancy of men in selected European countries. 8.2 From AG2016 to AG2018 To further clarify the differences between the old and the new projections tables, Projections Life Tables AG2016 and AG2018, cohort life expectancy is used. Cohort life expectancy includes all future mortality developments. Below the step-by-step impact on cohort life expectancy for starting year 2019 of each added set of datapoints is shown. Cohort life expectancy in 2019 AG2016 Add EU2015 Add NL2016 Add EU2016 Add NL2017 AG2018 At birth Males 90.4 -0.4 -0.1 0.1 0 90 Table 8.3 Cohort life expectancy in 2019 It is apparent that the addition of year 2015 observations from the European countries in particular has caused a downward adjustment to the projections. This is demonstrated clearly in Diagram 6.1 in paragraph 6.1. That diagram shows that the number of deaths in 2015 is higher than in 2014, while in the subsequent year the numbers remained the same or dropped slightly.
