From the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (1997) I find a table which gives, for each age from "1" to "85", the "Remaining Years of Life". In other words, the table gives the Life Expectancy for people aged "1" to "85". What I'd like is to generate a chart showing the (expected) percentage of people, currently aged 60, who survive to age 61 or 62 or ...etc.
>And how many currently aged 50 who survive to age 51, 52 ...
Suppose we let f(n) = number of people who are still alive at age n.
f(50) = 10000
This ritual will change R(n) to f(n), as shown below:
>Is that a valid chart?
>If you live long enough?
