When data derived from exceedingly large numbers of medical examinations made in connection with applications for life insurance are studied statistically to relate them to mortality experience, the results obviously will be used as the basis upon which future insurance will be underwritten. The results should also be of some interest to those concerned with conservation of life and health. For nearly 50 years studies have been carried out using data pooled from several insurance companies. The most recent of these studies1 represents a detailed evaluation of variations in build and blood pressure in relation to mortality experience.
