COHORT LIFE TABLE

Statistics Directorate    
French Equivalent: Table de mortalité de cohorte

Definition:
In contrast to current life table, a table based on a cohort of people born in the same period. Thus, for a cohort born in 1900, the death rates at 20 and 80 would be based on death rates observed about 1920 and 1980.
