SSASIM input table POPDYN

Contains description of dynamic time-pattern of various demographic parameters that determine age- and gender-specific patterns of fertility, immigration, mortality decline, and marriage.

Parent table is: POP

Child table is: FR_A

Child table is: IMM_GA

Child table is: MDR_GA

Child table is: SP_PROB

Child table is: SP_AGED

Go to SSASIM input parameters overview

SSASIM:   POPDYN . id
Identifies id of rows that contain specification of time pattern of parameters that determine age- and gender-specific demographic behavior, consisting of several foreign keys pointing to rows in child tables and at least one structural parameter. Typically, table contains several rows with the same id and different year values so that demographic pattern dynamics can be represented.

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

Source code: pop.h and pop.cpp

SSASIM:   POPDYN . 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:   POPDYN . cal_year
Specifies calendar year for which the parameters specified on this row are in effect. Values of 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:   POPDYN . fr_a_id
Points to row(s) in child FR_A table.

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

Source code: pop.h and pop.cpp

SSASIM:   POPDYN . fbirth_pct
Specifies the percent of native (i.e., non-foreign-born) newborns that are girls.

Valid values: 40.0 to 60.0, Real

Source code: pop.h and pop.cpp

SSASIM:   POPDYN . imm_ga_id
Points to row(s) in child IMM_GA table.

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

Source code: pop.h and pop.cpp

SSASIM:   POPDYN . mdr_ga_id
Points to row(s) in child MDR_GA table.

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

Source code: pop.h and pop.cpp

SSASIM:   POPDYN . mdr_sf_yng
Specifies mortality decline rate scaling factor applied to all the relative mdr values derived from the MDR_GA table entries for individuals under 65 in the year specified on this row.

Valid values: 0.0 to 2.0, Real

Source code: pop.h and pop.cpp

SSASIM:   POPDYN . mdr_sf_old
Specifies mortality decline rate scaling factor applied to all the relative mdr values derived from the MDR_GA table entries for individuals age 65+ in the year specified on this row.

Valid values: 0.0 to 2.0, Real

Source code: pop.h and pop.cpp

SSASIM:   POPDYN . sp_prob_id
Points to row(s) in child SP_PROB table.

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

Source code: pop.h and pop.cpp

SSASIM:   POPDYN . sp_aged_id
Points to row(s) in child SP_AGED table.

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

Source code: pop.h and pop.cpp
