Confidence intervals of LLE. Confidence intervals of loss in life expectancy (LLE) from different methods, settings and scenarios for including uncertainty in the general population mortality when estimating SEs. Conventional refers to the standard method for estimating SEs, where general population mortality is assumed to be measured without uncertainty. Bootstrap-based refers to the parametric bootstrap approach used for including uncertainty in population mortality rates in the estimation of SEs. See TableĀ 1 for information on different settings and scenarios. Results are presented for men, aged 55, 65, 75 and 85 years at diagnosis and LLE estimates for the Stockholm region. For setting 1 general population mortality rates are stratified by age, sex and calendar year. For setting 2 general population mortality rates are stratified by age, sex, calendar year and region. The LLE is measured in years
