# What is required for the calculation of survivorships from vertical (static) life tables?

In my exam preparation (ie. not graded) my teacher asks:

What is required for the calculation of survivorships from vertical (static) life tables?

(a) Principal property of the age structure

(b) An additional characteristic of the population

I know that we have to correct with the growth rate (if it is not 1) when we use vertical rather than horizontal life tables, but I am not sure how to translate that into parts (a) and (b) here.

Thanks!
