Healthy life years and life expectancy at age 65 by sex

The indicator Healthy Life Years (HLY) at age 65 measures the number of years that a person at age 65 is still expected to live in a healthy condition. HLY is a health expectancy indicator which combines information on mortality and morbidity. The data required are the age-specific prevalence (proportions) of the population in healthy and unhealthy conditions and age-specific mortality information. A healthy condition is defined by the absence of limitations in functioning/disability. The indicator is calculated separately for males and females. The indicator is also called disability-free life expectancy (DFLE).
Life expectancy at age 65 is defined as the mean number of years still to be lived by a person at age 65, if subjected throughout the rest of his or her life to the current mortality conditions.
