Point and interval forecasts of age-specific life expectancies: A model averaging approach
Background: Any improvement in the forecast accuracy of life expectancy would be beneficial for policy decision regarding the allocation of current and future resources. In this paper, I revisit some methods for forecasting age-specific life expectancies. Objective: This paper proposes a model averaging approach to produce accurate point forecasts of age-specific life expectancies. Methods: Illustrated by data from fourteen developed countries, we compare point and interval fore-casts among ten...[Show more]
