The life expectancy of males and females within the Derry City and Strabane District Council (DCSDC) area has increased over the last number of years. The life expectancy for men stood at 77.7 years in the period 2015-17 and for women the corresponding rate was 81.4 years.
In general, the DCSDC council area ranks lower than NI across a range of health indicators but the direction of trends are similar. It is notable that many of these issues are more acute in our areas that would have a high deprivation ranking.
