  1. Influence of different upper age limits on the "years of potential life lost" index.

    Article - En anglais

    The use of 65, 70 or 75 years as upper age limits for the « Years of Potential Life Lost » index (YPLL) could influence the relative importance assigned to different causes ofpremature death.

    Data from a representative year (1957) in Catalonia (Spain), show that health priorities and comparability among studies are not affected by the use of these upper age limits.
