This project aims to investigate the impact of cause-specific mortality experience on future life expectancy, via a cutting-edge vine copula approach. The first key project objective is to quantify and visualize the interaction and joint dynamics across different causes. The second key objective is to conduct scenario-based projections on future mortality levels and life expectancy, assuming a decrease/increase in mortality due to specific causes, as well as elimination of certain causes. The third and final objective, is to develop an interactive web-based tool for mortality and life expectancy projections based on the modelling outputs.
