Abstract

Abstract:

This paper proposes another approach to estimation of adult mortality in developing countries based on the variable-r method. The method derives estimates of adult mortality from the age distributions of two censuses. It is similar to Preston-Bennett method, but uses a slightly different approach to obtain estimates of person-years lived and expectation of life at age x. The proposed method is very simple and estimates from it compare favorably well with estimates from other related methods.
