This measure adjusts for the size of the population denominator and thus provides age-adjusted rates that are consistent with the selected age group populations. Besides providing age-adjusted YPLL rates for the entire population (all ages), the measure also provides age-adjusted rates for user-selected age groups, such as ages 0-14, ages 35-44, or ages 55-64.
When using this measure, select only a row variable to define the output, not a column variable. The row variable should be either Geographic Area, Years, or one of the demographic variables (Age Groups, Sex, Race, or Hispanic Ethnicity).
