What about total marriage rate which is sum of Age-specific marriage rates. And total first marriage rate which is analagous. And difference between total mar rate and total first mar rate is total remarriage rate. This is with period data w.o. nuptiality table.--Stan BECKER 18:34, 25 November 2014 (CET)

The main idea in this section is to describe the marriage in comparison to celibacy and how to measure it. After the first war, women having lost her husband or fiancé were numerous and haven't been able to marry. This was an important topic studied by Louis Henry (Perturbations de la nuptialité résultant de la guerre 1914-1918). The total marriage rate defined as the total number of marriages a person will have at the end of his/her marriageable age if he/she follows a given age-specific schedule of marriage rate, is a less important aspect. Harmonization between volumes of the second edition of the demographic dictionary, is not completion. I suggest to keep as it is, waiting to introduce the concept in the third edition.

are one form of multistate life table (drop resemble).Now I see from rest ofpara that you only mean multiple decrement table, i.e. no re-entries from divorced or widowed. It seems important to add text about the multistate table since it gives such useful indices not available from multiple decrement tables. (e.g. see Schoen and Canudos-Romo) appllicatio of same.--Stan BECKER 18:34, 25 November 2014 (CET)

I published myself an important work on multistate life tables in 1980, but Henry did not include multistate life tables into the dictionary in 1981. The German dictionary of 1987 did not include them too. I suggest to keep as it is because the harmonization process is not a new edition but the incorporation of all terms already included in some language specific volume and not in another.
