Abstract

We have studied human life expectancy in Croatia with the median derivative power function model; the median age of death was 76 and 81 years for men and women respectively. Cummulative mortality increases at a constant rate after the age 60 y and 65 y for men and women, respectively (r2 = 0.99 and 0.98). Individual life span is a stochastic (random) event within the deterministic frame of cumulative mortality.
