Now you have come to the page, Choose variable. This page give you the oportunity to select which variables and values you want to display in your result of the table. A variable is a property of a statistical unit. The page is divided into several boxes, one for each variable, where you can select values by click to highlight one or more values. It always starts with the statistics variable which is the main value counted in the table.
Navigating with keyboard and screenreader. Select multiple object in row: SHIFT+arrow down/up. To select a single value in the listbox: Windows:Hold Ctrl + arrow down. Then release Ctrl and press space. Repeat. Mac:CMD+arrow down/up. Then release CMD and press spacebar. Repeat. (Works only in Chrome, not in Safari). To exit listbox with values selected, press TAB-key.

Year in this table means year of birth.
Cohort life expectancy estimates represent the average number of additional years a person can be expected to live according to the assumed future changes in mortality for their cohort over the remainder of their life. These estimates are calculated using observed and projected age-specific death rates for the same cohort throughout their life (e.g. for a cohort born in 2019, life expectancy is based on observed death rates for age 0 in 2019, medium alternative projected death rates for age 1 in 2020, for age 2 in 2021, etc.). In order to produce complete cohort life expectancies for ages 0-100 over the period 1900-2100, we require observed (historical) death rates starting in 1900 and medium alternative projected death rates up to 2200 (i.e. 100 years of data for 0-year olds in 2100). Users should be aware that cohort life expectancies include assumed future mortality improvements that become less reliable the further forward we move from the projection base year. Interpreting the table: Year refers to birth year. The calendar year of interest can be deduced by summing the age and year of birth. For example, if you want to know the remaining cohort life expectancy of 62-year-olds in 2020, you should navigate down to age 62 and then to birth year 1958, i.e. the year in which 62-year-olds in 2020 were born (1958+62=2020).
