A History of Survival in New Zealand presents methods and results from a study of the New Zealand population. It traces the mortality and survival experience of people born from 1876 to 2004 by deriving complete cohort life tables. In doing so, it provides a statistical treasure that increases the understanding of New Zealand’s history.
This study makes a valuable contribution to understanding the changing mortality experience of New Zealanders. The cohort life tables provide a historical and ongoing statistical measure to complement existing period life tables prepared by Statistics New Zealand. This study will therefore benefit demographers, actuaries and other analysts interested in past and future mortality levels.
For updated and extended cohort mortality data tables see Cohort life tables.
