  1. Notes: σ reports weighted standard deviations, whereas CV corresponds to the Coefficient of variation and L reports the Theil-index of inequality, respectively. In the case of CV, weighted standard deviations were used. L could not be calculated in the case of the gender mortality gap due to negative values of this variable in 57 cases, where the natural logarithm could not be calculated.
