Abstract: Life tables published in the form of abridged period tables present an obstacle for the actuary or demographer who wishes to use age-specific mortality for long-term studies. Period life tables, on the other hand, show the mortality experience of people in a specific time period but not across periods. Current methods of deriving full cohort life tables commonly utilize a three-step procedure of first obtaining a series of historical and forecasted abridged period life tables, then calibrating these tables into abridged cohort life tables, and finally expanding the abridged tables into full tables. This paper presents the derivation of full cohort life tables from historical abridged period life tables for Singapore residents.
