''Should life potential be a better alternative to life expectancy at birth? an Indian illustration''
( 2013, Vol. 33 No.2 )
Given the limitation of life expectancy at birth as an indicator of survival as regard its comparison across population and over time, life potential per capita is suggested as an alternative to overcome such limitation. An illustration of this alternative indicator in case of Indian states presents a case for consideration as it makes a robust comparison of survival well being with consideration of the age structure of the population and the prevailing regime of survival.
Keywords: life expectancy, life potential
