"The second edition of this standard actuarial text contains new material on demography and population methods. All chapters have been updated and a number completely rewritten. A new section on stochastic processes has been added and the treatment of graduation and statistical technique brought into line with modern practice. In this difficult field where mathematical concepts are being applied to mortality analysis, students and actuarial
practitioners will find careful guidance and clear explanation supported by numerous examples.Contents:
Measures of Mortality - Rates and Exposed to Risk - Other Rate Intervals - Other Age Groupings and Some Special Problems -Mortality Rates by Age and Duration - Multiple Decrements - Sickness Rates - Marriage and Fertility Rates - Trends and Forecasting - Selection - Inference from Mortality and Other Investigations: Principles of Graduation - The Graphic Method - Summation and Adjusted - Average Graduation Formulae - Graduation by Mathematical Formula - Graduation by Referense to a Standard Table - Osculatory Interpolation and Spline Graduation: Abridged and Model Life Tables - Stochastic Processes - Practical Aspects of Mortality Tables in Current Use - Social and
Economic Factors in Mortality - Non Life Investigations - Appendix: History of Life Tables - Answers to Exercises - Index. As an indispensable and official textbook for actuarial students and practitioners, this new edition should be on their bookshelves. It will also appeal to demographers,
statisticians, (especially in medical schools and the Health Service) and social scientists concerned with population studies."
