英文摘要:

The purpose of this study was to quantify and partition the expected years of life with and without handicap for the Chinese population according to various types of handicaps, age-sex groups and regions.

A large-scale sample survey on handicapped persons conducted in 1987, and the 1990 population census constitute the basis for computing the expected years of life free of handicapped condition using the method proposed by Sullivan.

The expected years of life with handicap for the Chinese population in childhood (0-14 y), working ages (15-61 y) and the elderly (65 y +) were 0.40, 1.78, and 3.44 for males and 0.34, 1.69, and 4.55 for females. For the Chinese males over 65 y of age, there were about 1.83 expected years of life with aural handicap and 0.59 expected years of life with ocular handicap. For the Chinese females over 65 y of age, there were about 1.87 expected years of life with aural handicap and 1.16 expected years of life with ocular handicap. The burden of living with handicap is greater fur females and the elderly. This general pattern hold for all types of handicap except for skeletal handicap.

The expected years of life with handicap for the Chinese population provide useful information fur setting public health policies, despite the difficulty in making comparisons with the similar data in other countries.
