Thinking about the vital statistics!

In class today we were talking about the way that a register is kept of the numbers of births and deaths so that a dynamic list of the population can actually be kept.  

There are a few documents that we will be looking at as we work our way through this to get a picture of how these are used.

Deaths in 2006

Quarter totals for 2007

Riddor 2007   (this is my personal favourite – see if you can work out why!)

 

Finally I came across a very interesting set of slide notes from a presentation about the census that I thought you might be interested in seeing  . . . .

Post a comment on the site to discuss what you have found and what you think about these!
