Includes bibliographical references



A volume of essays on methodological issues in the study of human mortality. It aims to provide a comprehensive survey of current areas of research. The papers are divided into three sections. The first looks at standard and new approaches to data collection on mortality and includes previously unpublished results on population laboratories. The second and third sections look at latest methods and modes of measurement and examine approaches to mortality differentials and causes with reference to specific case studies.
