Older people are looking tougher in the latest batch of federal government life data.

Young adults and children are looking more fragile.

The National Center for Health Statistics, an arm of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has told the story in a new set of U.S. life expectancy tables for 2016.

We compared the tables for 2016 with the tables for 2015 and found that the average number of years of life remaining increased for people ages 35 and older — but fell for people under 35.

For a look at the year the government expects Americans of various ages to die, and how life expectancy for people of those ages changed between 2015 and 2016, see the data cards in the slideshow above.
