Default EOM2 - Mr. Arnold Freeman

I'm working on this EOM exercise and trying to figure out how to use the provided model. On the "model parameters" tab, there is a "2005 and pre-2005" section and a "post-2005" section.

I know I need to do some sensitivity testing on the post-2005 parameters, but when I try to double the negative fertility trend on the post-2005 side, nothing changes. However, the model does change the way I would expect a negative fertility trend to make it when I adjust the 2005 and pre-2005 section. Am I interpreting the model incorrectly? Any help, thanks!

Edit, sorry - I have realized my mistake. I walked through the worksheets to see where the trend is applied and now I understand.

CADreaming - if you are still around & reading this, where does the model change when you adjust (double, triple, etc.) the negative fertility trend on the post-2005 side?? I checked the Dependents, and it looks like the fertility trend is only utilized on the Mortality table. But nothing changes..

Has the exercise changed? I don't see any Excel models?

EOM2 used to be this exercise, "Mr. Arnold Freeman".

Now EOM2 is the "Scenarios and Futurism", and "Mr. Arnold Freeman" is the EOM2 re-do exercise that you're given if you DNMMR "Scenarios and Futurism".

Wow that sounds more complicated than I meant it to. Sorry if that was confusing.

Is anyone working on this exercise?

Im kinda confused on Task 3, the mortality improvement factor, should I adjust for both pre 2005 & post 2005, or just post 2005?

Didn't see much discussion on this topic, any input is appreciated!
