YPLL Query Module Configuration Selection
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.
- Years of Potential Life Lost (YPLL)
YPLLThe YPLL is created by taking 75 and subtracting the age at death, summed across all deaths of persons under age 75. This query displays the rate (YPLL per 100,000 persons) and the upper and lower 95% confidence intervals for the associated rate
