MortalityGaps: The Double-Gap Life Expectancy Forecasting Model
Life expectancy is highly correlated over time among countries and
between males and females. These associations can be used to improve forecasts.
Here we have implemented a method for forecasting female life expectancy based on
analysis of the gap between female life expectancy in a country compared with
the record level of female life expectancy in the world. Second, to forecast
male life expectancy, the gap between male life expectancy and female life
expectancy in a country is analysed. We named this method the Double-Gap model.
For a detailed description of the method see Pascariu et al. (2017).
