Abstract

As an extension of a recent result in generalized stable population theory, this paper develops a new method for estimating age-specific transition rates for population subgroups based on data from two successive surveys. A test based on detailed data on smoking behavior from the 1976 and 1981 censuses of New Zealand shows that the method works well when the data are aggregated into a small number of irregular age groups and when the surveys are irregularly spaced.
