SSASIM input table POP_DEL

Contains dynamic time-pattern of annual offsets to the three key demographic assumption variables.

Parent table is: POP

There are no child tables.

Go to SSASIM input parameters overview

SSASIM:   POP_DEL . id
Identifies calendar year offset values that affect the simulated values of the three key demographic assumptions listed in the TRND_MV and POP table.

Valid values: 1 to 999999999 (nine digits), Integer

Source code: pop.h and pop.cpp

SSASIM:   POP_DEL . 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:   POP_DEL . cal_year
Specifies calendar year for which the offset parameters specified on this row are in effect. Values of offset parameters are calculated by linear interpolation for years in between years for which parameters are specified with non-zero foreign-key id values or valid scalar values. Values of parameters are calculated by simple extrapolation of last values for years beyond the last year for which parameter values are specified.

Valid values: RUN.year_zero to (RUN.year_zero+RUN.num_years), Integer

Source code: pop.h and pop.cpp

SSASIM:   POP_DEL . tfr_offset
Specifies total fertility rate (tfr) offset added to otherwise simulated tfr value for calendar year specified on this row. The offset value is expressed in the same units as POP.tfr0 (i.e., natural logarithm of decimal rate). The specified values for RUN.year_zero and earlier years are ignored and always treated as a zero. Be sure to consult the .sti output file to be sure the values you specify in this table produce the intended effect.

Valid values: -10.0 to +10.0, Real

Source code: pop.h and pop.cpp

SSASIM:   POP_DEL . imm_offset
Specifies net immigration (imm) offset added to otherwise simulated imm value for calendar year specified on this row. The offset value is expressed in the same units as POP.imm0 (i.e., millions of people per year). The specified values for RUN.year_zero and earlier years are ignored and always treated as a zero. Be sure to consult the .sti output file to be sure the values you specify in this table produce the intended effect.

Valid values: -10.0 to +10.0, Real

Source code: pop.h and pop.cpp

SSASIM:   POP_DEL . mdr_offset
Specifies mortality decline rate (mdr) offset added to otherwise simulated mdr value for calendar year specified on this row. The offset value is expressed in the same units as POP.mdr0 (i.e., annual percentage rate of decline). The specified values for RUN.year_zero and earlier years are ignored and always treated as a zero. Be sure to consult the .sti output file to be sure the values you specify in this table produce the intended effect.

Valid values: -10.0 to +10.0, Real

Source code: pop.h and pop.cpp
