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.
