Visualizing Mortality Dynamics in the Lexis Diagram

Visualizing Mortality Dynamics in the Lexis Diagram By Roland Rau
English | PDF,EPUB | 2017 (2018 Edition) | 175 Pages | ISBN : 3319648187 | 57 MB

This book visualizes mortality dynamics in the Lexis diagram. While the standard approach of plotting death rates is also covered, the focus in this book is on the depiction of rates of mortality improvement over age and time. This rather novel approach offers a more intuitive understanding of the underlying dynamics, enabling readers to better understand whether period- or cohort-effects were instrumental for the development of mortality in a particular country. Besides maps for single countries, the book includes maps on the dynamics of selected causes of death in the United States, such as cardiovascular diseases or lung cancer.
