Average age at death in infancy and infant mortality level: Reconsidering the Coale-Demeny formulas at current levels of low mortality
27 August 2015 | Response Letter
Alternative estimates support new findings of Andreev and Kingkade
Although I used other data and methods than Andreev and Kingkade, I obtain similar results. It is not an exact replication of their study but provides support for their recommendation to estimate average at death for infants with one of the methods they suggested and not anymore with the canonical formula of Coale and Demeny.
Thank you for taking the letter into consideration,
