Mortality on the population level is available based on register but analyzing the data by sub-populations shows that a huge amount of death cases are not classified properly into an ISCED-based educational category. This problem causes mortality crossovers and incomplete information, especially in earlier periods and at older ages. In this paper, we aim to reconstruct the mortality pattern of the three educational groups in order to provide age-specific life tables for each group. Based on these life tables we separate the causes of life expectancy differences and changes between 1991 and 2015 for these groups.
