Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press. edu/buros/ ACTIVE LIFE EXPECTANCY Active life expectancy (ALE) refers to the number of years of life one can be expected to live without a disability. ALE answers the question, Of the remaining years of life for this cohort of persons, what proportion is expected to be spent disability-free? As such, it is used to evaluate the quality of life rather than just the quantity. The term was first introduced by Katz and colleagues in 1983, although others had described similar concepts in the mid-1960s and early 1970s.

In the measurement of ALE, disability is usually defined as difficulty in performing one or more activities of daily living (ADLs), which include eating, dressing, bathing, toileting, walking, and transferring to a bed or chair. There are two closely related concepts, disability-free life expectancy (DFLE) and healthy, or health-adjusted, life expectancy (HALE). While ALE uses the presence of a limitation in any one of the activities of daily living as an endpoint, disability-free life expectancy uses the presence of limitations in either ADLs or instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs), and HALE uses a measure of general health status, or good health versus poor health.
