Thus in countries with a small or medium population, it is customary to make the observation period cover several years when computing the annual probabilities of death. However, in endeavouring to include as many years of observation as possible in order to eliminate chance variations, it must be remembered that mortality varies greatly with time, that the secular trend exercises an important influence, and that where a large interval is chosen, the life table no longer reflects the present conditions of mortality.

The series of numbers 1 and d is shown graphically on page 49. H. e. the sum of deaths at all ages must be equal to the initial population. It is the international practice to take for 10 an integral multiple of 10, usually 100,000. Then there is the equation Px = 1 - qx =Ix+l = probability that a person aged x years will survive one year Ix (probability of surviving one year).

The denominator indicates the number of events that could happen and the numerator the number actually occurring. One of the most frequently used is the classification of deaths according to their various causes. In this connection it must be remembered when defining the limits of the group exposed to risk that, for instance, only women can be counted in the case of women's diseases and only infants in the case of infants' diseases. One of the most commonly used death-rates is the infant mortality rate.
