Myers, GeorgeC.
Gerontologist, v18 n5 p441-48 Oct 1978, Oct78
An examination of death rates among the elderly and trends over the period 1950-1975 and 1970-1975 for selected developed nations provides evidence of continued strong mortality declines for females and somewhat mixed results for males. Implications of these trends for forecasting the mortality component of U.S. population projections are highlighted. (Author)
