The author seeks "to apply the multi-states life table model to examine the mortality differentials by marital status and to study the patterns of marital status...of the population of...the Philippines." Census data for the years 1975 and 1980 and vital statistics for the period 1975-1979 are used. "Analysis of the marital status life tables has revealed that, in the Philippines, mortality for males is generally higher than for females. Also, it is observed that the death rates for widowed were very high in the younger ages, while those for the single were higher at the older ages, compared to the death rates of the presently married persons."
