  2. bThe indicator of healthy life years (HLYs) measures the number of remaining years that a person of specific age is expected to live without any severe or moderate health problem. The notion of health problem for Eurostat’s HLY is reflecting a disability dimension and is based on self-perception. This aims to measure the extent of any limitation, for at least six months, because of health problems that may have affected respondents regarding activities they usually do (the so-called GALI - Global Activity Limitation Instrument foreseen in the annual EU-SILC survey). The indicator is therefore also called disability-free life expectancy (DFLE). HLY is a composite indicator that combines mortality data with health status data
