Abstract: In this paper, we investigate the evolution of the mortality age profile and the distribution of age at death in a series of Latin America countries. Latin America presents an interesting case study because of the peculiarities of epidemiological and health transitions. We use data from different and alternative sources to investigate the compression of mortality in Latin America. We concentrated our analysis in three main points. First, we evaluate the quality of data that underlie national-level mortality ov… Show more

“…SEG-adj is a Death Distribution Method (DDM) proposed by Hill et al (2009) that combines the Growth Balance Method (Hill 1987) and the Synthetic Extinct Cohort (SEG), developed by Bennett and Horiuchi (1981). The authors construct the age distribution of the population based on the number of deaths and the age specific growth rate (QUEIROZ et al 2017;HILL et al 2009). The procedure is based on the knowledge that the number of people in age x is equal to the observed number of deaths above age x, adjusted by the age specific growth (QUEIROZ et al 2017;HILL et al 2009).…”
