Explanations of Life Expenctancy Table

The mortality figures shown in the table above are
based on the 2001 Census. These are the only population figures currently
available.There is a probable shortfall of approximately 6.6% between
the official Census count and subsequent mid-year estimates, and you
are therefore advised to bear this factor of inaccuracy in mindwhen
using the above table.

  • Low weight births: the percentage of live
    and stillborn infants born with a birth weight of less than 2,500
    grams.

  • Limiting long-term illness (LLTI): the number
    of residents having a limiting long-term illness, health problem or
    disability expressed as an indirectly standardised ratio. A ratio
    of 150 means that there were 50% more people with a LLTI than were
    expected. Conversely a ratio of 50 means that there were only half
    the expected number of people with a LLTI.

  • “Poor” health: the number of residents
    reporting that their health in the last 12 months was “not good”
    or “poor” expressed as an indirectly standardised ratio.
    A ratio of 150 means that there were 50% more people in “poor”
    health than were expected. Conversely a ratio of 50 means that there
    were only half the expected number of people in “poor” health.
  • Standardised Mortality Ratio (SMR): The ratio
    of the actual number of deaths for selected causes in an area compared
    to the number of deaths that would have been expected if the population
    had the same age and sex specific death rates as England and Wales.
    A ratio of 150 means that there were 50% more deaths than were expected.
    Conversely a ratio of 50 means that there were only half the expected
    number of deaths.
