  • Articles and reports: 89-569-X19990014847
    Description:

    This article is intended to trace a portrait of developments in health status in the United States, France, Canada and Quebec, despite the difficulty posed by a lack of consistent tools for measuring morbidity as a whole or restrictions on activities. A review of the data showed a significant decline in mortality over the past few years. This decline was largely attributable to the drop in chronic disease. Developments with respect to morbidity, however, are less certain. Reported morbidity rose in France between 1980 and 1991, while the average number of pathologies among the elderly declined in the United States between 1982 and 1989. Some studies concluded increased life expectancy essentially amounted to an increased number of years lived with disabilities. This means life expectancy free of disabilities would have stagnated. Subsequent American data, however, showed a significant decline in chronic disabilities among cohorts of elderly persons. Between 1981 and 1991 in France, all increased life expectancy resulted in extended life free of disabilities. Quebec experienced substantial overall increased during the 1987-1993 period, although men gained more than women. The additional life span gained was free of moderate or serious disabilities. Life expectancy free of severe disabilities, as with life expectancy, shows similar progress among countries. Only life expectancy free of any form of disability has shown different results according to time periods and countries.
