U.S. Small-area Life Expectancy Estimates Project (USALEEP)

The U.S. Small-area Life Expectancy Estimates Project (USALEEP) provides life expectancy data at the census tract level. The data is provided for most census tracts in the United States. The project calculates abridged life tables to produce estimates of life expectancy at birth -- the average number of years a person can expect to live. The calculated abridged life tables are based on a methodology developed for this project and described in the report found here. The initial period of measure for which life expectancy at birth was calculated for the project is 2010-2015. Maine and Wisconsin (and their associated census tracts) were excluded from the project because they only have 5 years of geocoded death records (2011-2015), instead of at least 6 years. Project data and documentation can be found on the CDC's National Center for Health Statistics site.
