    Article - En allemand

    Traduction en anglais : The Lee-Carter model for forecasting mortality in the Federal Republic of Germany.

    A model for forecasting mortality developed by Lee and Carter is applied to data of West Germany.

    The logs of the age-specific death rates are modeled as a linear function of an unobserved mortality index using the singular value decomposition method.

    The forecasts are based on projections of all individual trends of the mortality rates.

    Applied to life expectancy at birth between 1969 and 1992 the model implies an increase of 2.2 years in life expectancy for men and 2.4 years for women in 2002.
