Description


Wouldn't you like to have all the information you need for determining life and worklife expectancies in one complete volume: smokers by education, many educational categories by race/Hispanic origin, persons with medical conditions, and so forth? With Life and Worklife Expectancies, you can. Also, you will find an extensive treatment on how Hispanics, especially less educated Hispanics and those with little English language proficiency, challenge common sense conclusions about life and worklife expectancies. All this and more are shown with extensive tables and figures in easy to read format.

Part I contains an overview of the methods and data sources used in life tables: differences between period and cohort life tables, properties of survival data, life expectancy by educational attainment and race/Hispanic origin and by cigarette use, relative mortality ratios for persons with medical risks, and much more.

Part II deals with all the main methods of determining duration of working life. Detailed tables for all methods and many educational, demographic, smoking status and occupational categories are provided. Biases in previous worklife estimates are corrected by including mortality rates by educational attainment, and the increment-decrement model is carefully analyzed for correction of other potential biases.

This is the first comprehensive overview of life and worklife expectancies for attorneys, insurance professionals, and forensic economists. In addition to correcting biases in older estimates, it discusses pros and cons of the various methods, for example worklife expectancies, Life-Participation-Employment (LPE) and Median Years to Retirement (MYR). This book is packed with extensive tables of life and worklife expectancies for many personal characteristics--race, smoking status, occupation etc. There is no other book like Life and Worklife Expectancies.
