were estimated by multiplying sex- and age-specific SAM by remaining life expectancy at the time of death.
measures the quantity of years of life lost prematurely at the time of death.

To estimate the burden of premature deaths attributed to unintentional injuries among persons aged 0-19 years, CDC calculated state-specific YPLL
by sex, age, race, and injury mechanism based on data from the National Vital Statistics System multiple cause of death files for the period 2000-2009.
Binge drinking accounted for more than half of those deaths, two thirds of the YPLL
(2), and three quarters of the economic costs (1).
Years of potential life lost (YPLL
) before age 65 years were calculated by subtracting age at death from 65 years and summing to get the total YPLL
This report compares the public health burden of smoking among whites and blacks in Missouri by estimating the number of smoking-attributable deaths and YPLL
in these population subgroups during 2003-2007.

Years of potential life lost before age 65 years (YPLL
), and mean YPLL
were calculated using standard methodology.
