Data prior to 2017 to 19 data was missing for Glasgow City (S12000049) and North Lanarkshire (S12000050), these areas have been recoded due to a boundary change. Data is now available back to 2013 to 2015 for Healthy Life Expectancy, and to 2014 to 2016 for Disability-free Life Expectancy.

Healthy and disability-free life expectancy and accompanying confidence intervals for Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board and Swansea Bay University Health Board between 2011 to 2013 and 2017 to 2019 have been revised. These Welsh health boards had a boundary change in April 2019 which was not reflected in the previous estimates published in January 2021. This resulted in no statistically significant differences to the estimates for these administrations.


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.
