Notes on Life Table Functions:
  • nmx The age-specific death rate calculated as a ratio of the number deaths to the population.
  • nqx The proportion of persons in the cohort alive at the beginning of the age interval (x) and dying before reaching the end of the age interval (x + n).
  • lx The number of persons living at the beginning of the indicated age interval (x) out of the a beginning cohort of 100,000 live births.
  • ndx The number of deaths between the exact age x and x + n, out of the number of persons alive at the beginning of that age interval.
  • nLx The number of persons-years that would be lived within the age interval (x to x + n) by the assumed cohort of 100,000 births.
  • Tx The total of persons-years that would be lived after the beginning of the indicated age interval (x) by the cohort of 100,000 births.
  • ex The average remaining life time (in years) that a person who survives to the beginning of the indicated age interval.
  • The "NA" entries mean that the population counts were inadequate to enable the computation of reliable life table functions.
