This paper attempts to present a comprehensive view of the methodological and empirical aspects involved in the construction of increment-decrement life tables. It contrasts the two alternative approaches to the applied calculation of such tables. The movement approach, which views interstate transfers as events (such as deaths or births), requires data in the form of occurrence/exposure rates; the transition approach, which regards such transfers as the results of a change in an individual's state of presence between two points in time, uses data in the form of survivorship proportions.
