Spinal Cord Injury Life Expectancy Information

The following information was sourced from www.lifeexpectancy.org. This research group specializes in life expectancy calculations based on standard actuarial and biostatistical procedures. They apply these scientific methods to data on those who have suffered spinal cord (SCI) ) injuries. They have published extensively on life expectancy, and consulted on life expectancy in Canada, England, Australia and the United States.
