Mortality at the highest ages

The pattern of mortality at the highest ages has been considered by many authors. In earlier discussions, notably following the paper by Redington (1969), the hope was expressed that more work on the numbers of registered deaths at the highest ages, or using the DHSS sample of pensioners as an extra source of data, might help to throw light on the questions raised. The present paper attempts to make a further contribution to the debate by examining the data which are now available for England and Wales.
