of Mortality and other Characteristics resulting from the First Exit Time Theory applied to Life Table Data

In this page you can find and download a best fit model in Excel for Life Table
Data sets (The program includes also the Gompertz model).
paper can be also downloaded from this page.
Some of the futures from the new method used are:
The program provides
a graph of the Health State Function and the related maximum value and of the Mortality Function (from data and estimated,
first estimate and final).
An estimate for the curvature of H(t) is also provided along with the maximum deterioration
Two Life Tables are provided in order to estimate the Life Expectancy and the Life Expectancy at Birth by using
the provided data and the estimated from the program (best fit). The estimates are also provided
A graph providing the
probability density function g(x) and the mortality curve ln(μx) versus the probability function G(x).
In short any
information needed from statisticians, actuaries, demographers and any other interested scientist or practitioner is provided
including the death distribution and the generated stochastic paths based on the health state function and the estimated diffusion
