 Life expectancy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Human life expectancy at various ages and under different circumstances is carefully studied by the insurance and actuarial professions, and is calculated on the basis of historic data as shown on the mortality or annuity table used as a reference.
Life expectancy is also called average life span or mean life span, in particular distinction to maximum life span (the life span of the most long lived members of a class of living beings).
Life expectancy is the average number of years remaining for a living being (or the average for a class of living beings) of a given age to live.

 Life Expectancy for Social Security
Life expectancy at birth in 1930 was indeed only 58 for men and 62 for women, and the retirement age was 65.
But life expectancy at birth in the early decades of the 20th century was low due mainly to high infant mortality, and someone who died as a child would never have worked and paid into Social Security.
If we look at life expectancy statistics from the 1930s we might come to the conclusion that the Social Security program was designed in such a way that people would work for many years paying in taxes, but would not live long enough to collect benefits.

 Life Expectancy and Health Trends in Modern Society
This popularity of life expectancy at birth figures is perhaps related to the ease with which these figures may be misused to convey a false impression about the effectiveness of modern medical science.
As far as life expectancy is concerned for instance, these workers fail to mention in their media release that the life expectancy of 65 year old Australians has only increased by 1.9 years (men) and 1.5 years (women) during the period 1989 -1999 (48).
Another difficulty with regard to life expectancy figures relates to claims that any years of extra life that have occurred are considered to be extra years with a disability rather than extra years of healthy life (37), however I shall consider this matter a little later.

 Bend.com - Press Release "OHSU studies 'expectancy effect,' brain disorders": News and information from Bend, Oregon
Expectancy effect is considered a component of placebo effect, a long-studied medical outcome stemming from any clinically prescribed, biologically inert substance or inactive procedure for which there is no direct biological effect, including words, pills, gestures, devices and surgery.
Expectancy effect is considered more broad and includes all processes and influences that may affect the brain's anticipation of a response.
While this so-called "expectancy effect" may not necessarily influence the underlying cause of a disease, evidence suggests it can have an impact on a patient's health outcomes.

If it was my unintentional interpersonal expectancy effect or my "unconscious experimenter bias" that had led to the puzzling and disconcerting results of my dissertation, then presumably my students and I could produce the phenomenon in our own laboratory, and with several experimenters rather than just one.
A dozen years after the Pygmalion-in-the-classroom study was completed, the research literature on interpersonal expectancy effects had broadened to include 345 experiments in eight domains of research.
Moderator variables are preexisting variables, such as sex, age, and personality, that influence the magnitude of interpersonal expectancy effects; mediating variables are the behaviors by which expectations are communicated.

 The Hawthorne effect
Many believe that there are often large positive effects apparently simply from the expectation created in the patient: if true, this is the placebo effect, where the intervention in fact has no material effect, but the belief by the participant does.
The John Henry effect (Zdep and Irvine; 1970) is the opposite of the Hawthorne effect: it is when a supposedly control group, that gets no intervention, compares themselves to the experimental group and through extra effort gets the same effects or results.
However this was about one tenth the size of the effect prophesied, so it would be quite wrong to describe this as "seeing what you expect": it would be more accurate to suggest that experimenters could influence subjects on marginal cases and so systematically bias (only) within the range of experimental "noise".

 The Think Drink Effect
Expectancy effects seem to be relatively weak or absent altogether for the mood states that accompany drinking.
More than 25 published studies that use the balance-placebo design have replicated the expectancy effect with a variety of social and affective responses that were previously thought to be influenced primarily by the physiological or chemical properties of alcohol itself.
The studies also suggest that expectancy effects are strongest for behaviors that are believed to be positive or desirable for the drinker, like reduced anxiety, increased assertiveness, or behaviors that are associated with some form of immediate gratification such as sexual or aggressive acting out.

 JPR Paper
The most obvious interpretation of this change is that the expectancy effect created by a visible incomplete prime is completely absent when the subjects are unaware of the prime.
Whether the eliminated effects are "unwanted" or not depends on one's viewpoint, but whatever position is adopted on this issue, it must be admitted that a comparison of masked and non-masked priming effects is likely to be highly instructive as far as the architecture of the cognitive system is concerned.
These findings concern nonword priming effects in lexical decision and naming, the effects of mixed case presentation on nonword priming, and the dependence of priming on the nature of the distractors in lexical decision, suggesting possible strategy effects.
