    A Comparison of Period and Cohort Life Tables

    $25.00

    I. Introduction

    Forensic economists have two types of life tables available to them: cohort life tables and period life tables. A cohort life table is based on the experience of a specific cohort of individuals, for example, all persons born in the year 1910. Based on age-specific death rates observed through consecutive calendar years, a pure cohort life table reflects the mortality experience of the actual cohort from birth until no living members of the group remain. Rather than being based on the experience of a cohort of individuals born in the same year, a period life table presents what would happen to a synthetic cohort through time if it experienced the age-specific death rates for a particular period throughout the life of the cohort. The life tables published by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) are period life tables. (Arias, 2010). These are the life tables that are generally utilized in the development of work life expectancy.
