Perhaps you could find it and link it. Because that might be helpful to the rest of us to know what you have in mind.

Can't find it.
Not sure it is necessary to have that in order to understand my question though.

I'm trying to figure out what different kinds of results you're expecting to see. If you had an example to look at, it would give an idea.

I'm sure reinsurers are doing their own work in this area, and I doubt they're interested in sharing their info publicly. But hey, I could be wrong.

Instead of the SOA creating the next mortality table update - they could make it a contest on kaggle. Would be neat to see what non-actuaries come up with.
But, but, actuaries are Uniquely Qualified !

Well, actually, the Social Security Admin.* did the mortality study. The website in your link does a nice job of visualizing what their mortality data means.


*Note: I'm pretty sure they still have actuaries to do this kind of thing.

I thought the data came from the SS Admin.
The study was done by the site.

It's not a study.

It's a simulation. And it's not a bad simulation, per se.

But one can just generate the distribution of deaths from the SocSec tables.
