Abstract

Korean life tables were first attempted by H. Choe and S. Harafuji in the -late 1930's. These are considered to be pioneering works of the Korean demography. In the more recent years Y. Chang, K.S. Koh, and D. Lee made efforts to reconstruct the Korean life tables covering specific time periods in the past.2 Even though these works have made valued contributions to advancing our knowledge on mortality trends of the Korean Population, their products lack comparability for the time series analysis of the Korean mortality due to the conflicting assumptions and varied methodologies employed. Problem also arises in these earlier works of the Korean life tables for their failing to take into proper account of peculiar age and sex patterns of the Korean mortality. (The rest omitted)
