2017-2019 life expectancy data was published last week by ONS

In Coventry, there is a small increase in male life expectancy at birth (78.54 to 78.73) and for female there is a slight decrease (82.35 to 82.15).The gap in life expectancy between males and females for coventry is 3.4 years.

"This is one measure of average life span as an indication of the overall health of a population based on current mortality rates, these are not predictions”

These local area estimates for the latest period were produced using data up to the end of December 2019, and therefore precede the COVID-19 pandemic. Any impact of COVID-19 may have on local area life expectancy would be shown in the next release data covering the period 2018 to 2020.

Coventry City Metrics Dashboard is intended to assist with Coventry's Covid-19 reset and recovery. The dashboard contains

  • footfall data
  • car park occupancy, and
  • traffic flows

The graph below is an example which shows the comparison of footfall data in Coventry city centre. It shows that city centre footfall has recovered from its lowest point in early lockdown but remains notably lower than normal levels. Across August and September 2020 footfall was 33% lower than the same period in 2019.
