Research output: Contribution to journalReview articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Mortality forecasts, which consist of forecasting mortality rates on the basis of different predictors such as age, sex, country and cause, are widely used by demographers, social scientists, public health experts, policy makers and statisticians. This book on demographic forecasting introduces new statistical tools that have the potential to improve mortality forecasts by incorporating more explanatory variables and also by using current leading techniques like Bayesian modelling. The book maybe of interest to demographers, actuarial scientists, political scientists, epidemiologists and public health workers. The tools and techniques that are used in the book will be helpful to the researchers in many fields including medical and pharmaceutical research, social security and retirement planning.
