Mortality and Longevity Webinar: What can we learn from mortality by cause of death?

Wednesday 22 July 2020 12:00

Members of the Mortality Working Group of the IAA have analysed changes in mortality for about 30 causes of death  and will discuss the following:

  • how causes of death are classified, and the problems of long-term data
  • appropriate metrics, including "years of life lost" (YLL)*
  • causes of death - a "measure of cohortness"
  • the changes in dominant causes of death at older ages
  • how can these types of studies enhance mortality forecasting.

Speaker: Dov Raphael, Consulting Actuary

This webinar will be streamed from 12.00-12.50. There will be time at the end of the session for Q&A.
