This report covers the latest emerging trends in U.S. population mortality. The SOA relied upon data furnished by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Observations are based on the CDC’s recent release of 2019 mortality experience, along with prior mortality experience data from 1999 through 2018.
The report is found in a pdf below and contains key observations from this analysis. Three interactive dashboards have also been provided for the user to explore the results. Scroll down on this webpage to find these dashboards. The report pdf contains all the assumptions and definitions used to create the graphs and tables contained in the dashboards. Finally, the appendices referenced in the report pdf are contained in an Excel file below.
