16 Rate per 100,000 population Figure 1 Annual average age-specific death rates of accidental alcohol poisoning (ICD-9 code: E860), United States, 1996-1998.
As death rates at older ages decline, the rate of increase in total life expectancy at these ages converges to the rate of increase in life expectancy at birth, implying that the intersection problems inherent in direct extrapolation of age-specific total life expectancies can be avoided by extrapolating age-specific death rates.
The Lee-Carter model (Lee and Carter, 1992) for forecasting mortality rates has been used to demonstrate that changes in the logarithms of US national age-specific death rates during 1900-1989, and beyond, can be accurately represented as a random walk with drift, an especially simple type of time series structure.
