H a life expectancy at birth significantly higher than Victorian average L a life expectancy at birth significantly lower than Victorian average * a statistically significant change in life expectancy between the two periods."
Methodology
Life expectancy at birth over the period 1992 to 1996; and 1997 to 2001; was calculated for each Local Government Area and Health Region.
