A note on the Registrar-General's reports on occupational mortality in England and Wales in connexion with recent censuses

Published online by Cambridge University Press:  18 August 2016

Extract

The recent publication of the Registrar-General's Report on Occupational Mortality in England and Wales in connexion with the 1931 Census has suggested that a Note on this Report and its recent predecessors, with reference mainly to the methods employed in the investigation, may be of use to actuarial students.

Occupational Mortality has been investigated in connexion with every census since 1851. It may at first sight seem a simple matter to take, in each age group, the number exposed to risk in a given occupation from the census schedules and the number of deaths from the death registers, and from these figures to find the rates of mortality. In practice there are many pitfalls. The history of the successive investigations records various attempts to improve the statement and classification of the particulars and the presentation of the results, although there are still a number of known or suspected sources of error, the effect of which can only be estimated roughly, if at all.
