LCFIT: The Lee-Carter Fitter for Mortality Forecasting

Funding for this web-based version of the Lee-Carter mortality model estimator and forecaster was provided by a NIA grant to Lee, R03-AG024314 and by the NIA funded Center for the Economics and Demography of Aging (CEDA) under P30-AG012839-14. This website permits users to construct their own mortality forecasts using the Lee-Carter method and extensions of it, using their own data or by importing data from the Human Mortality Database (HMD).
