Individual Survival Curves Comparing Subjective and Observed Mortality Risks*

Résumé court: 

This paper’s estimation of survival curves leads to estimates of remaining life expectancy for various American population groups as well as to expectations of joint survival and widowhood by household. Subgroups such as blacks, more educated respondents, smokers and respondents from younger cohorts are in general over-optimistic regarding their survival prospects.
