United Nations (1982). Model Life Tables for Developing Countries (United Nations
    publication, Sales No. E.81.XIII.7).

Manual X

 

This report presents model life tables for developing countries. It gives sets of age-sex patterns of mortality which are based on reliably documented developing country data, thus supplementing the Coale-Demeny model life tables extracted mainly from historical European experience. Both the United Nations model life tables for developing countries and the Coale-Demeny model life tables are also available in the United Nations software package MORTPAK.


Since Model Life Tables for Developing Countries is no longer available in printed form, it is made available here in electronic form in Adobe PDF format.
