SSASIM input table INCR_DI

Contains information about relative disability incidence rates by age and gender. These relative rates, in conjunction with the aggregate disability incidence factor assumption variable, determine the absolute value of the disability incidence rate in each gender-age cell.

Parent table is: BDYN_DI

There are no child tables.

Go to SSASIM input parameters overview

SSASIM:   INCR_DI . id
Identifies id of rows that contain relative disability incidence rates for females and males of various ages, where rates are expressed as annual decimal (not percentage) probabilities. There is a different row for each age, so many rows have the same id value.

Valid values: 0 to 999999999 (nine digits), Integer

Source code: ben_di.h and ben_di.cpp

SSASIM:   INCR_DI . notes
Describes specification of table row in free-form note.

Valid values: any ASCII text (Note: do not copy and paste from a word processor because of the possibility of embedded non-ASCII characters.)

Source code: notes are not read by the model

SSASIM:   INCR_DI . age
Specifies age of females and males whose relative disability incidence rates are specified on this row.

Valid values: 0 to convertage_yr-1, Integer [where convertage_yr is equal to convertage parameter in BDYN_DI table for simulation year that corresponds to this row's id value]

Source code: ben_di.h and ben_di.cpp

SSASIM:   INCR_DI . female
Specifies annual relative disability incidence rate (Markov transition probability onto DI program) for females of this age as a decimal fraction (not a percent). Value is zero for an age that does not have a row. This relative rate determines, along with the aggregate disability incidence factor (defined in the ASSUMP child tables), the actual incidence rate.

Valid values: 0.0 to 1.0, Real

Source code: ben_di.h and ben_di.cpp

SSASIM:   INCR_DI . male
Specifies annual disability incidence rate (Markov transition probability onto DI program) for males of this age as a decimal fraction (not a percent). Value is zero for an age that does not have a row. This relative rate determines, along with the aggregate disability incidence factor (defined in the ASSUMP child tables), the actual incidence rate.

Valid values: 0.0 to 1.0, Real
