While the life expectancy tables indicate the percentage of a population who will survive to a certain age, rather than the percentage which have

reached a given age, the numbers appear servicable. We would have to 
resort to guesswork, otherwise. If we use the age categories of PENDRAGON 
(with a few tweaks), Peter's table gives us:

  11 Newborns
  29 Children (1-14)
   6 Tweenagers (15-19)
  14 Young adults (20-34)
  15 Mature adults (35-54)
   7 Old adults (55+)

Looks good to me... let's run with it.
