Yearly Probability Of Living

DEFINITION of 'Yearly Probability Of Living '

A numerical figure that depicts the likelihood of someone living per year. The yearly probability of living is determined by looking at a mortality table which shows the rate of death at each age in terms of the number of deaths per thousand. The data in the chart is determined by dividing the number of people alive at the end of a given year by the number of people alive at the beginning of that same year.

BREAKING DOWN 'Yearly Probability Of Living '
