Introduction Mortality decline over time

2. Data

The data set analyzed in this report includes death counts and mid-year population estimates for the entire population of Canada classified by sex, single calendar years, and single years of age. The data are available for the years 1921 to 1997 and for ages 0 to 89. Exposure estimates for deaths that occurred in a certain year and at a certain age will be approximated by mid-year population estimates. The data were made available by Statistics Canada and are used "as is". That is, the data have not been modified or adjusted in any way.
