  1. DEMOGRAPHIC MULTISTATE MODELING OF ALZHEIMERS DISEASE
    Douglas Ewbank; Fiscal Year: 2001
    ..This will complicate the process of comparing studies across populations and quantifying the importance of individual risk factors. The model of APOE and AD will be expanded to include additional risk factors. ..
  2. Fixed Traits and Mortality at the Oldest Ages
    Douglas Ewbank; Fiscal Year: 2002
    ..The models will be used to study changes in the effects of race/ethnicity, education, marital status (never married), and place of birth. ..
  3. Demographic Multi-State Modeling of Chronic Diseases
    Douglas Ewbank; Fiscal Year: 2006
    ..The model will also be used to study differences by sex and race/ethnicity and to provide insights into demographic models of cause-of-death deletion in life tables. ..
