... in death rates between sexual maturity and old age is commonly referred to as the Gompertz equation—a formula that remains a valuable tool in demography and in other scientific disciplines. Gompertz’s observation of a mathematical regularity in the life table led him to believe in the presence of a law...

These explanations point to the fact that aggregate rates of mortality do not reflect actual risks of death for all members of a population at a specific age. Rather, aggregate rates are average assessments...
