    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    The objective of this study was to partition the change in US life expectancy into those major causes of death and age groups that contributed most to the decline in life expectancy for Black males and females and to the increase in life expectancy for White males and females in the period from 1984 through 1989.

    Methods

    By means of a life table partitioning technique, the positive and negative contributions of age and cause of death to changes in life expectancy were estimated.
