The CMI publishes regular analyses of mortality in England & Wales:
- We have published “quarterly” updates since Q4 of 2018.
- We are publishing “pandemic” updates during the current coronavirus pandemic. These are shorter than the quarterly updates, with a focus on “excess mortality” during the pandemic. We initially published these weekly, but reduced the frequency as mortality returned to more typical levels.
- We have released “beta” software that allows Authorised Users to produce their own ad hoc updates.
- Working Paper 111 describes the methods used and contains the first update.
Next planned updates:
- “Pandemic” update – Week 39 of 2020, on 6 October 2020

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 1 and 2 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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

This webinar will provide an update on the emerging thinking around future regulation of DB schemes:
The webinar will discuss the challenges and opportunities schemes face in evaluating end game options, choosing a target state and understanding the impact this strategic decision could have on member outcomes long after the “end state” is reached. Adolfo, Kevin and Rhian bring over 60 years of experience in the industry and a variety of perspectives as scheme actuary, covenant adviser, trustee, de-risking adviser and insurer.
Cash-flow driven investing is a game-changer for DB pension funds navigating their end-game. Suitable for sponsors who want to reduce risks on their balance sheets. And for trustees, it shifts the focus to providing greater certainty of returns, managing funding level volatility and ensuring they have enough income to pay cash-flow requirements.
The talk will provide an understanding of the priorities and relationships between deficit reduction contributions, in the context of wider scheme funding, and different types of value outflow from the employer based on the working party’s recently published report.
