Table 2 Illustration of how to calculate loss in total non-health GDP using actual information on Algeria

From: Indirect cost of maternal deaths in the WHO African Region in 2010

Variables Values
(a) Algeria total maternal deaths in 2010 690
(b) Proportion of deaths occurring under 15 years 0.00905968432540048
(c) Proportion of deaths occurring 15–45 years 0.9909403156746
(d) TMD <15 = 690 x 0.00905968432540048 6.251182185
(e) TMD 15–45 = 690 x 0.9909403156746 683.7488178
(f) Average age at death for those dying below 15 years (AAD <15) 13
(g) Average age at death for those dying between 15–45 years (AAD 15–45), i.e. (15 + 49)/2 32
(h) Algeria average female life expectancy at birth (LE) in years 74
(i) NHGDPPC = GDPPC Int$ - PCTHE = Int$ 7,975.80 -Int$364.28 Int$7611.522
(j) Discount rate (r) 3%
(k) Undiscounted years of life list by under 15 years (YLL <15) = LE - AAD <15 = 74 – 13 61
(l) Discounted years of life lost by under 15 years (YLL <15) 27.84035307
(m) Undiscounted years of life lost by those aged 15 to 49 year YLL 15–45 = LE - AAD 15–49 = 74–32 44
(n) Discounted YLL 15–49 24.25427392
(o) NHGDPLoss <15 = Discounted YLL <15 x NHGDPPC Int$ x TMD <15 = 27.84035307 x 7611.522 x 6.251182185 Int$1,324,672.14
(p) NHGDPLoss 15–49 = Discounted YLL 15–49 x NHGDPPC Int$ x TMD 15–49 = 24.25427392 x 7611.522 x 683.7488178 Int$126,228,195.41
(q) TNHGDPLoss = (NHGDPLoss <15 + NHGDPLoss 15–49) = Int$1,324,672.14+ Int$ 126,228,195.41 Int$127,552,867.55
