Historical epidemiology and determinants of mortality

Historical epidemiology and determinants of mortality

Infectious disease mortality is a major cause of death in historical populations, but the age, social status and gender of those most susceptible has shifted markedly over time and between regions. Urbanisation and population growth have led to altered geographies of mortality. Our research makes use of demographic sources such as population listings, parish registers and the Census to investigate the changing pattern of mortality in Britain from the medieval period to the early 20th century.
