Example text

The aim of GIP is to estimate a series of mortality and migration parameters that correspond to the period for which birth and death counts are available and, simultaneously, a series of population age structures that are consistent with the data and the parameters. ) First, Oeppen expresses the general equations for population movement, defining the population aged a at time t, Na,t, as a function of Na−1,t−1 together with the death probability and the emigration rate, both at age a. Births in (t − 1,t) are related to N0,t by means of the appropriate survival probability and migration rate.

After about 50 years, the initial differences were washed out. In other words, GIP-BP results are not reliable for roughly the first 50 years, due to the weak ergodicity principle. GIP-BP shares this characteristic with IP, unless the initial age structure is known for IP. It is surprising that GIP-BP produces reliable empirical results, in spite of the weak ergodicity problem mentioned above. One possible explanation is that the number of feasible solutions is severely restricted by the fact that age-specific mortality depends on only one scaling parameter.
