Because standardization by gender has no advantages when follow-up time is similar for males and females, posterior estimates are simply averaged by gender. For ages under about 40 years, mean shrinkages...

Further, we assess the sensitivity of the method to violations in various assumptions underlying the procedure: error in estimated growth rates...
