  1. Reinterpreting mortality statistics : some uses of Gompertzian analysis in epidemiological research.

    Article - En anglais

    Gompertzian analyses of mortality data have recently been undertaken for a number of individual conditions (Riggs JE.

    Mech Ageing Dev 1990; 55:

    • Mech Ageing Dev 1990;

    • 207-220 [1];

    • Neilson S et al.

    Mech Ageing Dev 1992; 64:

    • Mech Ageing Dev 1992;

    • 201-216 [2];

    • Neilson S et al.

    Acta Neurol Scand 1993; 87:184191 [3]). Such analyses are in principle of particular epidemiological value in circumstances where demographic change is occurring and where the balance between mortality from different conditions is subject to change.

    However, the extent to which a Gompertzian relationship between age and mortality holds for particular conditions has been subject to debate.
