Population heterogeneity dynamics is one of the research directions in IIASA's Population Program. One typical and practical problem related to hidden heterogeneity is the estimation of the heterogeneity distribution.

This paper describes the approach to such an estimation which is based on the method of structural minimization of mean risk. It is shown how this method can be implemented to some real data. The main ideas of the method are also described.
