  1. Abbreviations: DFLE Disability-free life expectancy, DLE Disabled life expectancy, TLE Total life expectancy
  2. All life expectancy (LE) estimates are 10-year LEs. Survival beyond 10 years was censored. TLE is the sum of DFLE and DLE. The 95% CIs reflect the variation between individuals of the indicated estimates; other sources of variation were assumed negligible. Minima and maxima are for subgroups; CIs for ratios are based on CIs for the corresponding minima and maxima
