Health Expectancies at birth and at age 65 in the United Kingdom, 2007–2009
This bulletin presents figures for healthy life expectancy (HLE) and disability-free life expectancy (DFLE) at birth and at age 65 for males and females in the UK and constituent countries in 2007–09 and compares this period with 2004–06. HLE and DFLE add a dimension of the quality of life expectancy (LE), providing users with a summary measure of the time spent in favourable and unfavourable health states, which can be used to inform policy, planning and research in both public and private sectors in areas such as health, population and pensions.

Health Expectancies at birth and age 65 in the United Kingdom, 2006-08 (Pdf 156Kb)
This report presents the latest figures on male and female health expectancy, at birth and at age 65, for the UK and its four constituent countries. While life expectancy (LE) provides an estimate of average expected life-span, healthy life expectancy (HLE) divides total LE into years spent in good or ‘not good’ health. Disability-free life expectancy (DFLE) divides LE into years lived with and without a chronic illness or disability. These figures are three-year averages. LE is taken from the UK national interim life tables published annually by ONS, and the measures of health and chronic illness from the General Household Survey (GHS) in Great Britain and the Continuous Household Survey (CHS) in Northern Ireland.
