Abstract

SANTOS, Jair L. F.. On the force of mortality and life tables construction. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 1972, vol.6, n.3, pp. 263-267. ISSN 0034-8910.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89101972000300004.

Life tables construction has been simplified through the assumption of a constant force of mortality in each age group. In this paper further advantages are shown, concerning both the conceptual nature and simpler calculations derived from that assumption.

Keywords : Mortality [force]; Life tables.
