Mortality monitor software and user guide:
The mortality monitor software allows Authorised Users to produce their own ad hoc updates whenever they wish. It produces the output that is included in the quarterly mortality monitors, including Charts 2 and 3 of the pandemic mortality monitor, but not calculations of excess mortality.
We are making the software available as a “beta” version, which is provided on an “as is” and “own risk” basis. It will need to be updated from time to time, as described in the user guide, and may stop working if the ONS changes the format of its data.
Should you encounter any errors, lack of functionality or other problems whilst using the software, please let us know by contacting email@example.com.
Although the mortality monitors are publicly available, the software is restricted to Authorised Users: employees of CMI subscribers, and researchers for non-commercial use. The CMI website has details of how to become an Authorised User, if you are not already.
If you have any questions about the CMI please email
