In this article, changes in the quality of health-adjusted life expectancy of the British population between 1991 and 1998 are analysed. It is found that at all given age levels, life expectancy increased during this period. Life expectancy at birth increased by 1 year for women and by 1.5 years for men. It is further found that the prevalence of health problems and handicaps increased during the 1990s. For all age categories, the self-assessment of the health status showed that the quality of health also declined on average. We concluded that the quality-adjusted life expectancy between 1991 and 1998 showed a decrease rather than an increase.
