These are the first intercensal estimates of inequality in healthy life expectancy by deciles of deprivation to be produced by ONS using clusters of Lower Super Output Areas (LSOAs) by the English Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD). Males in the most advantaged areas can expect to live 19.3 years longer in ‘Good’ health than those in the least advantaged areas as measured by the slope index of inequality (SII). For females this was 20.1 years.

Males in the most deprived areas have a life expectancy 9.2 years shorter (when measured by the range) than males in the least deprived areas, they also spend a smaller proportion of their shorter lives in ‘Good’ health (70.9% compared to 85.2%). Females in the most deprived areas have a life expectancy 6.8 years shorter (when measured by the range) than females in the least deprived areas they also expect to spend 16.9% less of their life in ‘Good’ health (66.5% compared to 83.4%).
