CMI publishes SAPS pensioner mortality data

The working paper presents a high level analysis over the period 2001 to 2009, using standardised mortality ratios to analyse the mortality improvements experience and to compare the experience for the following datasets:

>> SAPS dataset versus the England & Wales (E&W) population dataset (collected by the Office for National Statistics). Improvements derived from the E&W population data is the basis for the CMI Mortality Projections Model

>> Male and female pensioners with different pension amounts

>> Male pensioners versus female pensioners.

The CMI Committee considered whether to undertake a more detailed statistical analysis of mortality improvements within the SAPS dataset for a possible future working paper. However, subsequent feedback in respect of the draft version, released to members in April, indicated that the high level analysis presented was valuable and that further research is not considered to be a high priority.
