IAA Provides a new Information Base on
International Mortality

version française

The IAA Mortality Working Group (MWG) is pleased to announce a new means by which persons interested in the field of international mortality can access a significant collection and analysis of information in this area. The IAA MWG has developed an online Information Base which contains information on the studies made to date by the MWG, and references to other papers and websites that are of particular interest.

This information base is located in the Mortality Working Group (MWG) section of the International Actuarial Association (IAA) website. This resource base is not meant to be exhaustive, but the MWG expects that it will be of particular interest to non-specialist actuaries and non-actuaries looking for information on a variety of topics on international mortality.

What does mortality look like around the world? What mortality issues are actuaries working on? If these questions are of interest to you, then the MWG information base should prove to be an excellent place to seek further information on these and similar topics. Sources of information include the Human Mortality Database, the Society of Actuaries Table Manager, the Continuous Mortality Investigation Library, and International Mortality Experience studies conducted in various countries. These can provide very useful information for someone wishing to study mortality. Members of the MWG, which currently represent 23 countries, also provide a periodic update on what is happening in their own specific regions.

The IAA Mortality Working Group (MWG) was set up to study and share information about aspects of mortality that are of interest to actuaries and others. To learn more about the work of the IAA on this topic, contact the IAA Secretariat, care of the Chairperson of the Working Group.

The International Actuarial Association (IAA) is the worldwide association of professional actuarial associations, with a number of special interest sections for individual actuaries. The IAA exists to encourage the development of a global profession, acknowledged as technically competent and professionally reliable, which will ensure that the public interest is served.
