Mortality and early growth in England, France, and Sweden
AbstractWe set up an open-economy, three-country version of the endogenous- mortality model of Lagerloef (forthcoming in the International Economic Review). The model is calibrated to pre-industrial mortality data from England, France and Sweden. Fitting parameters to match observed rates of correlation in mortality rates, the model can also account for: (1) differences in the volatility of mortality rates; and (2) differences in the timing of the industrial revolution.
