Abstract

Mortality population data available for the Asia-Pacific Region are currently limited. This report summarizes a data collection exercise targeting mortality data from the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. The assembled datasets are made freely available for future research. These are: (a) Asia-Pacific Aggregate population (APA) mortality, and (b) Asia-Pacific Age-Gender specific (APAG) mortality. The APA mortality dataset comprises data for 11 countries over 32-113 years, while the APAG data comprises data for 15 age-groups (both genders), in 8 countries over 31 years. In addition to the documentation of the data collection exercise, we provide a general description of the overall trends in both datasets and highlight the results of two follow-up papers that analyse both datasets to identify opportunities related to longevity risk management in the APAC region.

Keywords: longevity, mortality, Asia-Pacific
