Default Interpolating between census dates

Any thoughts on an appropriate interpolation technique for interpolating mortality tables between two census dates? For example say I have qx for 1990 and 2000 and want to estimate qx at each age in 1996.Thanks in advance.

I am not an expert at developing mortality tables, but the purpose of this question confuses me. Are you looking at a published mortality table or are you actually looking at mortality rates developed from actual experience at 2 different points in time? What exactly do you think getting that piece of information is going to tell you and is this really an appropriate way to calculate it?
