Healthy Life Expectancy report 2020/22 published

13 July 2023

The Healthy Life Expectancy report 2020/22 has been published by Public Health Intelligence. 

Healthy life expectancy, HLE, for Jersey’s population has been calculated and is presented in this report. Population mortality data has been combined with general health status data, to produce estimates of the span of life that a person can expect to live in ‘very good’ or ‘good’ health. 

Healthy life expectancy can be calculated for any age, to give the further number of years a person can expect to live in good health on average, given the age they have already attained. 

At birth, females in Jersey could expect to live on average, 61.2 years in good health, if the current age specific mortality rates applied to them throughout their life, while males at birth in Jersey, could expect to live on average, 64.4 years in good health. 

On average, a 65 year old female could expect to live 13.1 more years in good health, and a 65 year old male could expect to live 11.6 more years in good health. 

There was no statistically significant difference between the genders in the most recent data. 

In the 2020/2022 period, healthy life expectancy for females at birth was statistically lower than it was in the 2016-2018 period, while healthy life expectancy at birth in males has remained statistically similar since the 2016-2018 period.
