The Comparison of Male and Female Mortality Rates
Preview not available

Abstract

The difference between the ages at which male and female rates of mortality are equal (called the female advantage) is proposed as a measure of comparison of the mortality of the sexes. The female advantage is calculated for various periods of time in a number of different countries. The application of the female advantage method to cause of death figures is briefly considered. A study of the pattern of the female advantages for ages over 40 leads to an approximate empirical relationship between the ages at which the mortality rates for the sexes are equal.
