Select life table  (SELECT life table)

A complete life table 1 is generally one in which the values of the life table functions (431-2) are given in single years of age. An abridged life table 2 is one in which the functions are given only for certain pivotal ages 3 and the intermediate values have to be obtained by interpolation (151-7). Occasionally the expression select life table 5 is used to denote a table relating to the experience of a number of specially selected individuals who have been chosen on grounds of health, in opposition to general life tables 6, sometimes called aggregate life tables 6 by actuaries.
