Demographic Forecasting andthe Role of PriorsFederico GirosiThe RAND CorporationSanta Monica CA USA.

In most cases some pooling is necessaryRegressions cannotbe estimated separatelyacross age groups orcountries .

then the main points could come up one at a time in "build" fashion. Can we streamline the verbiage on this chart--maybe even make it into a kind of table with adult and child across the top and the important factors down the side? then the main points could come up one at a time in "build" fashion.
