Abstract

Life expectancy in a heterogeneous population can be increased by lowering mortality rates or by averting deaths at different ages, from different causes, or for different groups, as well as by changing the proportions of individuals in various risk groups, perhaps by altering the transition rates between groups. Understanding how such changes in population structure affect life expectancy is useful in evaluating alternative lifesaving policies.
