ABSTRACT

During 1919, the deaths of 2,105 physicians of the United States and Canada were noted in The Journal. Adding 2.5 per cent, to this number on account of delayed reports and possible omissions, we may estimate the total number of deaths to have been 2,163. As the total number of physicians classified in the American Medical Directory is 159,444, we may estimate that the annual death rate approximates 13.29 per thousand. The average annual mortality for the period from 1914 to 1919, inclusive, is approximately 14.81.

Ages.  —The age at death varied from 24 to 100, with an average of 59 years, 1 month and 25 days. Of the decedents, 88 were under 30; 239 between 31 and 40; 280 between 41 and 50; 442 between 51 and 60; 498 between 61 and 70; 366 between 71 and 80; 156 between 81 and 90, and 18 between 91 and 100.
