1. Introduction

Differences in mortality between males and females are usually analyzed by examining cross-sectional, age-specific mortality patterns, trends in death rates over time, or trends in life expectancy at birth. Such analysis permits one to capture general mortality trends but age-and-time-specific differences in survival are left unexplored. More detailed analysis can be performed using intensity regression [Hoem 1987, Hoem 1995] and demographic methods of visualization [Vaupel et al. 1998]. In this article these techniques will be demonstrated using mortality data for Canada.
