Query Results for Years of Potential Life Lost (YPLL - Premature Mortality) Before Age 75 for Utah Counties - Rate of Potential Life Lost per 100,000 Population

5-Year Groups Filter: 2018-2022
Data Grouped By:5-Year Groups
YPLL in this query has not been age-adjusted. "Premature" mortality for this indicator has been defined here as death at an age younger than 75. Premature mortality, known as "Years of Potential Life Lost Before Age 75," or YPLL, is one measure to look at overall health status. In addition to looking at the number of deaths, YPLL also considers the age of the decedent. The measure is the sum of all the years of life lost among persons who died at an age younger than 75 years, and gives a higher weight to deaths of younger persons. A 30-year-old would contribute 45 years to the measure, whereas a 70-year-old would contribute five. A high YPLL indicates more persons died at younger ages.
