M. Suzman Copyright  2003 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. ISBN: 0-470-84397-7 2 Compression of Morbidity WILMA J. NUSSELDER Erasmus MC, Rotterdam,The Netherlands INTRODUCTION Traditionally, a decline in mortality was considered to reflect a decline in morbidity in the population. Nowadays, in low mortality countries where improvements in life expectancy are mainly caused by mortality reductions from chronic diseases at older ages, serious doubts exist as to whether longer life means better health for the surviving population.

6, which compares its evolution to those of Kannisto’s C50 and IQR, clearly illustrates the advantage of this indicator over the other two. It also shows that the advantage over C50 is only seen when mortality under the age of 10 is sufficiently high as to require a lower limit below this age. In all other cases, 10C50 is equal to Kannisto’s C50 in its construction. However, 10C50 is not itself totally independent of the level of infant and child mortality. On the one hand, in certain cases, where more than 50% of deaths occur before the age of 10, it simply does not exist.

This new indicator, which we call 10C10, 10C25, 10C50, 10C90, using the symbols suggested by Kannisto, helps us to follow the rectangularisation of the survival curve for a much longer period. Thus, the value of 10C50 decreased considerably in the second half of the 18th century and continued to decrease, though much more slowly, during the 19th century. 6, which compares its evolution to those of Kannisto’s C50 and IQR, clearly illustrates the advantage of this indicator over the other two. It also shows that the advantage over C50 is only seen when mortality under the age of 10 is sufficiently high as to require a lower limit below this age.
