Official Statistics call for data by individual age, since a significant number of statistical operations, such as the calculation of demographic indicators, require the use of degrouped population figures. However, in some countries or regions population data are only available in a grouped form, usually as quinquennial age groups plus a large open-ended interval for elderly people. A challenging problem faced by Official Statistics institutes is how to degroup data by individual age, allowing one, if needed, to include demographic knowledge or to be consistent with the heaped information. In this paper Mathematical Optimization models are proposed to address this important, yet seldom studied problem. These models also consider a frequent issue in statistical sources: the presence of noise and errors, and, in particular, the phenomenon known as age heaping.
