Figure 5b:
Average Annual Rate of Mortality Decline by Age Groups

Note: The average annual rate of mortality decline was calculated as -ln(Q2/Q1)/(t2-t1) where Q1 and Q2 are the age-specific probabilities of dying for the first and last year of a period, and t1 and t2 are the first and last year of that period.
