Years of Potential Life Lost Years of potential life lost (YPLL) can be used to distinguish the burden of premature death in populations. Unlike crude and standard age-adjusted measures, YPLL emphasizes underlying causes of premature death in a population. When calculating YPLL, greater weight is given to deaths at a younger age, while no weight is given to deaths at an age of 75 years or older. Deaths at younger ages are more likely due to preventable causes and can be decreased by intervention and education efforts. Sasha Zaharoff
