50-year study finds Canadian women falling behind on potential years of life lost

According to CIHI's report, Canadian women (compared with women in peer countries) have lost ground on this measure since the 1990s and are falling behind the international average. In 2010, Canadian women lost 2,385 potential years of life per 100,000 — 315 more than Australia, and 589 more than Japan, a consistent top-performing country for women. When examining PYLL for specific diseases, Canadian women were close to the international average for lung cancer in the 1960s. Over the 50-year study period, Canadian women fell behind on lung cancer while other peer countries improved. This means that in 2010, Canadian women lost more years of potential life from lung cancer than women in most of the other countries studied. Read more here
