Quantitative Demography and Health Estimates: Expanding the Life Tables to Include the Healthy... [We provide a method to expand the Life Tables to include the Healthy Life Years Lost to Disability (HLYL), to estimate the Proportion with Disability and then apply the Sullivan Method to estimate the Healthy Life Expectancy (HLE) and the Healthy Life Years Lost (HLYL). The main Template is provided in Excel. The Template is based on the ten-column life table from the Human Mortality Database (HMD) expanded by adding another seven columns for estimating the proportion of disability and another four columns to apply the Sullivan method for calculating the HLE and the HLYL. In the Template only the first five columns from the life table from HMD are inserted, while the next sixteen columns are automatically calculated.

Abstract

[We provide a method to expand the Life Tables to include the Healthy Life Years Lost to Disability (HLYL), to estimate the Proportion with Disability and then apply the Sullivan Method to estimate the Healthy Life Expectancy (HLE) and the Healthy Life Years Lost (HLYL). The main Template is provided in Excel. The Template is based on the ten-column life table from the Human Mortality Database (HMD) expanded by adding another seven columns for estimating the proportion of disability and another four columns to apply the Sullivan method for calculating the HLE and the HLYL. In the Template only the first five columns from the life table from HMD are inserted, while the next sixteen columns are automatically calculated. Applications in several countries are presented.]
