  1. LE and SALE stand for the traditional life expectancy and stillbirths adjusted life expectancy, respectively, and are for 2015 above. Traditional life expectancy data is from World Development Indicators (WDI) Difference between the two measures decrease in life-expectancy due to considering stillbirths. In the first ten rows, countries are ranked by this difference; in the last seven by DALY = YLL (years of life lost) of stillbirths
