  • The authors compute the death rate for the population of Kuwait, based on data from Kuwaiti insurance companies, which hitherto have used life tables from the United States and England to compute expected mortality. Graduated mortality rates are introduced, as is a discussion of data adjustment. Finally, Kuwait's new adjusted mortality rates are compared to foreign life tables, and large discrepancies are found. The time period covered is 1985-1989.
