Modeling Childhood Mortality

Abstract:
A new parametric model of child mortality is introduced and it is shown that it gives close fits to observed childhood survival functions. The model can be used for a variety of tasks including graduation or representation of childhood mortality and as an aid in indirect estimation of child mortality. The model is illustrated partly in terms of the survival function partly in terms of the mortality intensity.

Keywords:
Laws of mortality; parametric representation of child mortality; graduation; indirect estimation of child mortality.
