Regression modelling of mortality surfaces and the deceleration of mortality
A mortality surface is a measure of mortality indexed by year and age. A central limit theorem for aggregate data is established for the mortality surface defined by the logistic transform of the year and age-specific probability of death and this is used to postulate and estimate a regression model. Extra variance may be the result of heterogeneity within cohorts, and it is shown how the model based on aggregate data could be decomposed to accommodate sub-cohorts by using proportional odds.
