This paper explores recent mortality trends in men and women, in Santiago de Cali.To this end, the model proposed by Lee and Cater (1992) is fitted to the data. Throughtechniques commonly used in contemporary actuarial and demographic literatures, thisarticle also provides future projections of specific mortality rates, which may be usefulfor the literature and regional policy agencies. The mortality patterns documented hereare in line we previous findings for other regions in the world. Important reductions inmost of the mortality rates have occurred during the sample period and, therefore, futurereductions in mortality rates are expected, in almost all the age-ranges, excepting menbetween 15 and 25 years.
