Variance in mortality between the 35 developed countries, according to three summary measures of the age-at-death distribution, 1970–2010. Notes: the figure shows variance in statistics of the distribution of life-table ages at death above age 10; e 10 is the life expectancy at age ten; e C is the Equivalent Length of Life with e 10 adjusted for dispersion of ages at death above age 10; e A is the Equivalent Length of Life with e 10 adjusted for dispersion and skewness of ages at death above age 10.
