Study of the various probability distributions for estimating life table scale parameters
Length of life is fundamental dimension of human prosperity. The construction of mathematical model of mortality is very important for an inferential decision. Mathematical modeling of mortality is also crucial for forecasting of mortality. There has been dramatic increase in the life expectancy of human in all industrial countries in the last century. In the first decade increase was due to decline in mortality rate of infants and in later decades was due to mortality rates of adults. For forecasting mortality certain parameters of mortality is to be estimated. In the present paper a study of the parameters of mortality estimated for forecasting mortality by various continuous probability distributions is made.
