The selected behavior changes can be modeled two ways.
1) Birth cohort.
The selected behavior changes are applied to a cohort so that each individual lives their entire life with the changes in place.
2) Current US population
The selected behavior changes are applied to the current US population at its current age distribution. Thus the changes take effect at each person’s current age.
The model can analyze and present results for the whole population or focus on one gender.
The proportion alive and causes of mortality will be displayed for this many years into the future.
