were estimated by multiplying sex- and age-specific SAM by remaining life expectancy at the time of death.
During 2006-2010, the median age-adjusted YPLL
rate was 823 per 100,000 population (state median YPLL
= 42,756; rate range = 1,534 YPLL
per 100,000 in New Mexico to 634 YPLL
per 100,000 in Utah) (Table 2).
rose in proportion with the increase in suicides, from 0.81% in 1981 to 2.20% in 2002.
The report measured the Years of Potential Life Lost (YPLL
), a technique similar to that used by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as a fundamental measure of premature death (1, 2).
for 2001-2005 were estimated using the ARDI application using death and life expectancy data from the National Vital Statistics System.
was calculated for each decedent by subtracting the age at death in years from 75.
for 2001-2005 were estimated using the Alcohol-Related Disease Impact (ARDI) application using death and life expectancy data from the National Vital Statistics System.
Years of potential life lost (YPLL
) before age 65 years were calculated by subtracting age at death from 65 years and summing to get the total YPLL
During 2000-2004 in Missouri, smoking caused 9,600 deaths, 132,000 years of potential life lost (YPLL
), $2.4 billion in productivity losses, and $2.2 billion in smoking-related health-care expenditures annually (2).
Excessive alcohol use was the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States (1), and it annually accounted for, on average, approximately 79,000 deaths * per year and 2.3 million years of potential life lost (YPLL
) during 2001-2005.
