Quick Reference

Statistical data on mortality, life expectancy, or risk of death in a defined population. When this population comprises the policy-holders of a life insurance corporation, commonly used to calculate insurance premium rates, it is, of course, a selected group, not representative of the national population as a whole. Comprehensive national data are preferable.

Subjects: Public Health and Epidemiology.
