Current rate  (CURRENT rate)

The numerical values of demographic functions are generally listed in 1, such as life tables (431-1), fertility tables (634-1), or nuptiality tables (522-1). A distinction is made between <b>current tables2 which are based on observations collected during a limited period of time, and cohort tables3 or generation tables3, which deal with the experience of a cohort throughout its lifetime. A similar distinction is made between current rates4, which refer to a given period of time, and cohort rates5 or generation rates5, which refer to a cohort. </b>
