Reexamining the declining effect of age on mortality differentials associated with excess body mass: Evidence of cohort distortions in the United States
Objectives. I examined age patterns of mortality differentials associated with body mass because the declining age effect observed in previous comparisons of cross-sectional age groups is susceptible to cohort and period distortions and because previous studies used time since baseline as time at risk, making the evaluation of age-specific mortality impossible.
