Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between life expectancy and health?

male healthy life expectancy increased from 60.6 to 63.4 years, a gain of 2.8 years years in poor health (the difference between life expectancy and healthy life expectancy) increased slightly from 15.4 years to 16.1 years, however, the proportion of life males spent in poor health did not change significantly and remained at around 20%

How many years of life do people live in poor health?

Since 2000 to 2002, life expectancy has increased by more years than healthy life expectancy and therefore the number of years lived in poor health has also increased slightly; in 2013 to 2015 it was 16.1 years for males and 19.0 years for females.

What is healthy life expectancy at birth?

Healthy life expectancy at birth is an estimate of the average number of years babies born this year would live in a state of ‘good’ general health if mortality levels at each age, and the level of good health at each age, remain constant in the future.

How do chronic conditions affect life expectancy?

Results: Life expectancy decreases with each additional chronic condition. A 67-year-old individual with no chronic conditions will live on average 22.6 additional years. A 67-year-old individual with 5 chronic conditions and ≥10 chronic conditions will live 7.7 fewer years and 17.6 fewer years, respectively.
