Hi all,

I have a variable (mortality counts, see below) for different age
ranges (below 45, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79,
80-84, 85 onwards). I would like to know whether is possible to
retrieve a continuous distribution of deaths out of this information?

I would appreciate if you could help me with this
Thanks a lot in advance

Best regards,
Maria
