The CMI’s research is reliant on the data we receive from life insurers and actuarial consultancies; we are very grateful to the organisations that submit data

Data requirements

Data requirements for each of the investigations are regularly reviewed and updated

Recent changes have aimed to improve the accuracy of the analyses, to add new data fields to enable additional analyses to be undertaken and to ensure that the CMI is fully compliant with the letter and spirit of data protection legislation.

To a large extent, the CMI's analyses and results are based on earlier sets of data requirements. The CMI is generally happy to continue to accept data submissions from existing contributors using earlier coding guides. Please email for more details.

Terms and conditions for data submission
