A short-cut method for estimating death registration completeness in destabilized populations

Math Popul Stud. 1991;3(1):39-51. doi: 10.1080/08898489109525322.


"This paper proposes a simple method for evaluating death registration completeness during intercensal periods. It is easier to implement than alternative methods but its main advantage is making explicit the dependence of results on the quality of readily observed demographic variables. Applications are made to data from South Korea and Argentina."
