Calculation of the expected lifetime lost due to an extra risk
AbstractMethods are given for estimating the average years of life lost when a person is discovered to be at risk from an extra hazard. The methods use the probability per year of the extra risk striking, and the mean and standard deviation of lifetime in the absence of the risk. The formulae are simple enough that only a hand-held calculator is needed.
