SSASIM input table MDR_GA

Contains description of age- and gender-specific mortality decline rates. These rates are normalized by dividing through by the population-weighted mortality decline rate. The normalized rates are multiplied by the aggregate mortality decline rate to determine the mortality decline rate for each age-gender cell.

Parent table is: POPDYN

There are no child tables.

Go to SSASIM input parameters overview

SSASIM:   MDR_GA . id
Identifies set of age- and gender-specific mortality decline rates, so many rows will have the same id value.

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

Source code: pop.h and pop.cpp

SSASIM:   MDR_GA . 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:   MDR_GA . age
Specifies age for which mortality decline rates shown on this row refers. There must be a row for each age between the lowest and highest age specified with id value equal to the id value on this row. Mortality decline rates are assumed to be zero for ages without rows.

Valid values: 0 to 125, Integer

Source code: pop.h and pop.cpp

SSASIM:   MDR_GA . female
Specifies mortality decline rate of females for age specified on this row.

Valid values: any, Real [annual decline rate expressed in percentage terms]

Source code: pop.h and pop.cpp

SSASIM:   MDR_GA . male
Specifies mortality decline rate of males for age specified on this row.

Valid values: any, Real [annual decline rate expressed in percentage terms]

Source code: pop.h and pop.cpp
