This paper proposes procedures for estimating age-status-specific demographic rates to ensure that the projected summary measures of marriage/union formation and dissolution and marital and non-marital fertility in the future years are achieved consistently. The procedures proposed in this paper can be applied in both macro and micro models for family household or actuarial/welfare projections and simulations that need the time-varying age-status-specific demographic rates as input.
