Continuous Mortality Investigation
The Continuous Mortality Investigation (CMI) carries out research into mortality and morbidity experience.
Much of the CMI’s work is based on analysing data supplied by UK life assurance companies and by actuarial consultancies, in respect of members of large self-administered pension schemes (SAPS). Currently, the following investigations are undertaken:
The investigations focus on analysing the experience observed in subsets of the aggregated data and also periodically they produce mortality and morbidity tables used by actuaries.
Future changes in mortality experience is an area of great importance to actuaries. Information on the CMI’s work, including the latest versions of the CMI Library of mortality projections and the CMI Mortality projections model, can be accessed here.
The CMI is funded by contributions from its members, the majority of whom also submit data. Members receive results for any data they have submitted and detailed results presenting the experience of the aggregated dataset. All dealings with members are confidential.
Some CMI research findings are published more widely. Historically, CMI reports were published but in 2002 the CMI also started reporting developments in the form of Working papers, allowing information to be disseminated quickly and facilitate feedback and consultation.
The CMI’s latest news provides information on current work, recent publications and seminar presentations.
