Life expectancy and disability in Australia 1988 to 2003

1 Jul 2006
Description

Life expectancy has increased markedly over the last century. Has the number of years lived with illness or disability fallen or risen as overall life expectancy has lengthened? This report explores this question, focusing on years lived with disability. The report updates previous estimates of 'health expectancies' in Australia and examines the changes over a period of 15 years, from 1988 to 2003.
