nCube definition


The Registrar General's Decennial Supplements provided extremely detailed information on causes of death between 1851-60 and 1901-10, but unfortunately used five different classifications of cause of death to cover those six decades. Graham Mooney, of Johns Hopkins University, has therefore defined a simplified cause of death classification to which we have converted the original data. Inevitably, many causes have had to be grouped into an enlarged 'other' category, but we are still able to consistently...


identify the main epidemic diseases. This nCube presents the more detailed information for children under 5, although in order to include all decades we have had to ignore gender and combine ages 2 to 4 into a single category.
