The impact of increases in the modal age at death Mt (i.e., delay) and of increases in β3,t (i.e., compression) on the death probabilities and the age-at-death distribution. (We assume an increase of modal age by 2 months per year and a 5% increase of the compression parameter per 10 years. The values for year zero are chosen such that we observe the well-known mortality pattern by age)
