Evothung Ezung, Manoshi Phukon

In this paper a seven parameters polynomial regression model showing relation between life expectancy at birth ( ) and survival probabilities at ages zero, one, two, three, fourand five is developed. The credibility of the model is shown by fitting in five UN and four Coaland Demeny model life tables. By using the proposed model, for five major states of India Kerala, Karnataka, Punjab, West Bengal and Himachal Pradesh - are estimated. Infant mortality rates, under five mortality rates of the five states of India, and North-Eastern (NE) Indian states and their districts are estimated by using with indirect techniques of estimation on census data of 2001 and 2011 of India in which Trussell’s variant of Brass methods, Logit smoothing, Weibull survival function and Hill’s method are employed and hence using proposed model, has been estimated for each of NE states and their districts.
