First, in the highest proportion of deaths occurred during the first year of life. This contrasts sharply with the much lower proportion of infant deaths in and in Second, in most deaths occurred over a wide range of years 55 to 79 compared to deaths in that were more concentrated in a narrower range of ages 75 to This was due to an increase in deaths among older age groups, and fewer deaths among younger age groups. Also, the most common age at death in excluding infant deaths was 70, and by it was 85, an increase of 15 years.
Lastly, the peaks of the distributions in Chart 2 become steeper and steeper over time, suggesting that survival to older ages may be approaching a natural limit. Note 9.

Dividing the past 90 years into year periods shows that the gains in life expectancy for the entire population are slowing down Chart 3. The largest gain in life expectancy at birth This compares with a gain of 7. Most of the increases in life expectancy in the past 90 years came from declines in what is frequently called premature death, that is to say death among individuals who are younger than age Looking at gains by age group within each period Chart 3 shows that declines in infant and child deaths between and contributed the most to the increase in life expectancy at birth.
Note 10 That is, during the to time period, out of the From to , further declines in infant and child mortality accounted for to 2. During the last period to , this contribution was 0. The second largest contribution to increased life expectancy was the reduction in deaths in the 5 to 74 age group Chart 3.
Between and , declines in deaths occurring in the 5 to 74 age range contributed to the remaining gains in life expectancy, that is, 4. From to , declines in deaths among the 5 to 74 age group contributed to about half of the gain in life expectancy, and in the last period to to the majority two-thirds of the gain 4. From to , several major advances in public health took place. Two noteworthy examples are childhood immunization against infectious diseases, and life-altering scientific discoveries such as penicillin and insulin.
Note 11 Other major developments with significant impacts on the population health for the remainder of the century and up to the present time included new approaches in health promotion, illness prevention, community advocacy and the use of legislation along with the introduction of broad social programs.
Note Over the past 90 years, life expectancy has not greatly increased for those over 75 years of age.

Exploring changes in the main causes of death over the past 60 years helps further explain the changes in life expectancy. Note 13 Reductions in deaths from circulatory system diseases, such as heart disease, were the biggest contributors to gains in life expectancy Chart 4. From to , declines in deaths from infectious and parasitic diseases, and respiratory system diseases were the next biggest contributors to years gained in life expectancy, while cancer survival did not play a part in improvements in life expectancy.
However, from to , longer cancer survival contributed to a gain of 0. Gains in life expectancy also occurred because there was a reduction in deaths caused by accidents and violence from to , contributing a gain of 0. The reduction in accidents was fostered by various health awareness campaigns and legislation to prevent injury such as making seat belt use mandatory, which contributed to decreased traffic deaths.
A slight increase in deaths due to infectious and parasitic diseases between and contributed to a decrease of 0. Infectious diseases remain a challenge with the resurgence of previously controlled diseases and the introduction of new infections.

Many families find that receiving the final pathological diagnosis provides closure and resolution to the caregiving experience and important information about their own medical risks. In addition, the autopsy contributes greatly to our scientific understanding of the effects of the disease on the brain and may lead to better treatments in the future.
Brain donation by non-research participants is, unfortunately, far less valuable to scientific study. A signed informed consent form is all that is needed to be enrolled in the program. Without the signed consent, the legal next-of-kin must authorize the brain autopsy before it can be performed. To donate your brain for the betterment of humanity and to improve the lives of others in the future is compatible with the teachings of nearly all religions.
If you are concerned about brain donation and your religious faith, we encourage you to discuss this issue with your spiritual leader.
