Conclusions Notes

7. Acknowledgements

This report is based mainly on material from the final mini-project completed by the author for the course "An Introduction to Regression Analysis of Duration Data (Event-History Regression)", which was given by Prof. Jan M. Hoem during the winter semester 2000 at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research, Germany. I am grateful to Prof. Jan M. Hoem for supporting my work on this project and for making available free of charge the computer program Rocanova, written by Sten Martinelle of Statistics Sweden for estimation intensity regression models. Without this required mini-project this analysis would, no doubt, never have been conducted.

I also wish to thank Prof. J. Vaupel for comments on an earlier draft and Prof. Thomas K. Burch and Statistics Canada for providing me with Canadian mortality data. I am also grateful to Renée Flibotte, Ruth Carlson and Karl Brehmer for editorial help with this report. I also extend my thanks to the entire staff of the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research for their overall support of this project.
