8                Life Expectancy from birth is very sensitive to infant and child mortality.
9                Life Expectancy from age 65 is less sensitive to infant and child mortaltiy
10                than life expectancy from birth and is thought to better represent overall
11                adult health status.

14                A stable life expectancy statistic should be based on a population of at least
15                5,000 persons. 95% confidence intervals are not computed if the age-specific death
16                rate is zero for any age group in the life table.

19                In NM-IBIS, life expectancy is calculated using a method developed by CL Chiang.
