Three ECHI projects funded under the EU Health Programmes established the first lists of ECHI indicators, aiming to provide comparable health information to monitor health at EU level.

This is a work-in-progress indicator
Work-in-progress indicators are (nearly) ready for incorporation in regular international data collections, but not yet used in practice. There (nearly) is consensus on the indicator definition and calculation, and data are available in a reasonable number of countries.
