Abstract

In recent years, high mortality from cardiovascular diseases (chronic ischemic heart disease, acute coronary syndrome, cerebrovascular diseases, atherosclerosis, hypertensive diseases) and diabetes mellitus have burdened economic and health system of the Slovak Republic considerably. By eliminating these deaths, the life expectancy could be prolonged. Since the mortality of population during working period has higher importance in terms of economic consequences of diseases, this article aims to assess the potential gains in life expectancy (PGLEs) of the Slovak population comparing the entire life span and working life-time. Data are obtained from the National Health Information Center mortality reports by sex during 1996-2014, and the method of constructing abridged life tables is used to compute the corresponding PGLEs. The added years, which would be gained by eliminating causes of deaths, are decomposed by the two sets of working age groups population (25-44 and 45-64 years). The highest impact on life expectancy was recorded in chronic ischemic heart disease for both sexes aged 45-64 years (0.078 for males, 0.019 added years for females) over 1996-2014. However, they showed a small declining trend (- 16%) for males and even an increasing trend (2%) for females. At present, the labour force potential of working group (25-44 years) is most threatened by deaths from cerebrovascular diseases, while population of working age (45-64 years) by deaths from chronic ischemic heart disease. Relative importance of acute coronary syndrome for males (45-64 years) increased, when comparing the entire with working time life. The findings pose new and immediate challenges to policy makers and provoke discussion about prevention program strategies leading to increasing the life expectancy.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 23 August 2018.
All research outputs
#10,013,694
of 17,847,557 outputs
Outputs from Health Economics Review
#136
of 333 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#134,994
of 285,894 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Health Economics Review
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,847,557 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 43rd percentile – i.e., 43% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 333 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.2. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 58% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 285,894 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 52% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
