  1. Population aging patterns : the expansion of mortality.

    Article - En anglais

    We used the hypothesis of mortality compression as a framework to examine patterns of mortality from 1962 to 1984.

    Data from national vital statistics records were used for analysis of the changing age at death for percentiles of the population.

    Data from the Social Security Administration and the U.S. Census Bureau were used to calculate the force fo mortality.

    The mean age at death for all percentiles, including the oldest groups, has risen during the interval.
