What are the chances of living to 100?

The Department for Work and Pensions has published a new report on predicting the probability for reaching 100 years old at different age groups. Although the Guardian Data Store focussed more on the year of birth, the age in 2011 was equally interesting - particularly once you reach your mid 80s.

Even more so, the differences between men and women are quite substantial - both for a given age, but also looking up the age at which a man is as likely as an older woman of reaching 100. They say a picture is worth a thousand words and hopefully this Tableau Public Viz sheds some light on the relationship between age, gender and life expectancy.
