Age-specific mortality  (AGE-SPECIFIC mortality)

In the study of age-specific mortality1 the terms infant mortality (410-1) and neo-natal mortality (410-2) are the only terms that refer to generally accepted age periods. The usage of such terms as child mortality2, adult mortality3 or mortality of old age4 is not uniform.
