I\, . / V vAL .... ~ ,~ I F If Years Figure 2. The population of Velletri, 1595-1870. Population data of the period 15951870 were available only for the first year and for 8 other dates of the 17 th century, 18 dates of the 18th century and 26 dates of the 19th century. The population at the other dates is estimated. 1 Population History of Velletri The population of Velletri was seriously affected in 1656 by the outbreak of plague, which affected many regions of Italy between 1652 and 1657.

Generalising the inverse projection model, for every group of deaths g (g= 1,2, .. ,G), we have: ( qx,t - q~) = gkt ( q~ - q~ ) and, hence, k - g t - gDt - EPx,ttfx b EPx,(qf - EPx,tqx with x = I(g), ... , u(g), where I(g) and u(g) are the lower and upper age limits of group g. We have found very useful to distinguish at least between infant (first year of life) and subsequent mortality. The factors affecting infant mortality are generally different from those affecting adult mortality, and the impact on the demographic system is also generally differentiated.
