Video Summary: Disability Free Life Expectancy by Area Deprivation: England, 2003-06 and 2007-10
25-Jul-2013A video summary of the Statistical bulletin, inequality in disability free life expectancy by area deprivation: England , 2003-06 and 2007-10. The Video summary firstly discusses the relationship between life expectancy and disability free life expectancy. The next slide explains how small areas were grouped by their index of multiple deprivation scores to provide five area groups ranked by their relative deprivation. The disability free life expectancy for males and females at birth and age 65 in the most and least deprived areas is discussed for the two, four year periods 2003-06 and 2007-10. The third slide discusses the general trends seen in life expectancy and disability free life expectancy between 2003-06 and 2007-10 using males at birth as an example. The concept of using the range between the least and most deprived areas to assess inequality is introduced. The final slide considers the range for males and females at birth and at age 65 for 2003-06 and 2007-10 and concludes that inequality is increasing and that it is increasing more rapidly for females than for males.
