Details

This table is a blend of Makeham's mortality law for ages 13 and above and some ad hoc values for ages 0 to 12.

The parameters for Makeham's mortality law are

1000 * mu(x) = 0.7 + 0.05 * 10^(0.04 * x)

where mu(x) is the force of mortality.

The published Illustrative Life Table just shows ages 0 to 110 but in the computing exercises of chapter 3 the authors explain that the table's age range is from 0 to 140.
