Indicator 1a.i, the Potential Years of Life Lost (PYLL) rate in England has been published for the first time specifically for adults. The adult PYLL rates for males and females were 2,157 and 1,700 per 100,000 population respectively in 2011. This compares to PYLL rates of 2,325 and 1,844 per 100,000 population for males and females of all ages in the same year.
Further, three new indicators in domain 2 concerned with health-related quality of life for people with long-term conditions and carers have been published for the first time. The average health status score for people aged 18 and over reporting that they have a long-term condition in 2012/13 was 0.73. This value has remained static compared to 2011/12. The proportion of people who said that they felt supported to manage their long-term condition in 2012/13 was 69.3 per cent. This figure is slightly lower compared to 69.6 per cent in 2011/12. The average health status score for individuals who reported that they were carers remained stable at around 0.8 in 2012/13 compared to the previous year.
