Notices

04 September 2019

Disability-Free Life Expectancy (DFLE) estimates are not comparable across the whole time series between the periods 2009 to 2011 and 2015 to 2017.

This is because there were changes in questions used to estimate disability in the Annual Population Survey (APS) between 2009 to 2011 and 2015 to 2017. It is important to note that DFLE estimates for the period 2014 to 2016 and 2015 to 2017 are based on the latest harmonised standard questions exclusively for the first time and are comparable, but they are not comparable with previous periods in the series.

More information is available in the Health state life expectancies Quality and Methodology Information report.
