The absence of disease or disability, good level of education and active involvement in society are considered as essential
dimensions for a long and fulfilling life. To assess these concepts, we propose a new indicator the Healthy Literate Working
Dynamic Life Expectancy that associates health, literacy level and employment status along with the changing mortality
scenario in India and some of its major states for the census year 2011 based on the rates of change of probabilities of death
over the previous 10 years i.e.2001. Since dynamic life table considers the mortality changes prevailing in a population,
therefore it might provide a more realistic and accurate picture of the healthy, literate and working population under
consideration. The analysis reveals higher values of healthy literate working dynamic life expectancy at birth for India
and all the major states as compared under usual consideration. Further, different inequalities and a number of particular
cases are obtained from the above proposed index.
