Published: 28 May 2019
...Samuel J. Clark Abstract The majority of countries in Africa and nearly one-third of all countries require mortality models to infer the complete age schedules of mortality that are required to conduct population estimates, projections/forecasts, and other tasks in demography and epidemiology...

Demography (2001) 38 (1): 79–95.
Published: 01 February 2001
...Scott M. Lynch; J. Scott Brown Abstract In this research we develop a model of mortality rates that parameterizes mortality deceleration and compression, permits hypothesis tests for change in these parameters over time, and allows for formal gender comparisons. Our model fits mortality data well...

Published: 01 August 1999
...Norman J. Johnson; Paul D. Sorlie; Eric Backlund Abstract We compare mortality differences for specific and general categories of occupations using a national cohort of approximately 380,000 persons aged 25-64 from the U.S. National Longitudinal Mortality Study. Based on comparisons of relative...

Demography (1981) 18 (2): 217–230.
Published: 01 May 1981
...Kenneth G. Manton; Eric Stallard Abstract A method of analyzing mortality rates in heterogeneous populations is presented. This method, appropriate for the investigation of mortality rates in small geographic areas (e.g., counties) where the forces of mobility operate to selectively “package...

Published: 01 May 1982
... morbidity distributions in the national population using auxiliary biomedical evidence and theory to estimate transitions to morbidity states from a cohort mortality time series. We present computational methods which employ these estimates of morbid state transitions to produce life table functions...

Demography (1978) 15 (4): 549–557.
Published: 01 November 1978
...Ellen Percy Kraly; Douglas A. Norris Abstract An evaluation of the Brass childhood mortality estimates under conditions of declining mortality shows them to overestimate current mortality. Error increases as the rate of mortality decline increases, as the childhood age up to which cumulative...

Published: 01 February 2006
...Matthew E. Dupre; Alexis T. Franzese; Emilio A. Parrado Abstract This study investigates the relationships among religious attendance, mortality, and the black-white mortality crossover. We build on prior research by examining the link between attendance and mortality while testing whether...

Published: 12 September 2012
...Dora L. Costa Abstract Debilitating events could leave either more frail or more robust survivors, depending on the extent of scarring and mortality selection. The majority of empirical analyses find more frail survivors. I find heterogeneous effects. Among severely stressed former Union Army...

Published: 08 September 2020
...Filippo Temporin Abstract Three mechanisms related to household living standards might affect early-age mortality: the absolute level of deprivation, its level relative to the average of the community, and the inequality in the distribution of deprivation within communities. A large body...

Published: 23 June 2012
...Ryan K. Masters Abstract In this article, I examine the black-white crossover in U.S. adult all-cause mortality, emphasizing how cohort effects condition age-specific estimates of mortality risk. I employ hierarchical age-period-cohort methods on the National Health Interview Survey-Linked...
