Description

Dataset with values of the Lee-Carter bx parameter for countries where mortality was obtained using model life tables.

Usage

1

Format

A data frame with nine rows and 28 columns. Each row corresponds to one mortality age pattern as defined in the vwBaseYear dataset. Each column corresponds to an age group, starting with 0-1, 1-4, 5-9, 10-14, ... up to 125-129, 130+.

Details

These values are used for countries for which the column AgeMortalityType in vwBaseYear is equal to “Model life tables”. In such a case a row is selected that corresponds to the corresponding value of the column AgeMortalityPattern (also in vwBaseYear). These values are then used instead of estimating the Lee-Carter b_x from the country's historical data.
