1920 Census: United States Abridged Life Tables, 1919-1920

Component ID: #ti1112709634

These life tables, 92 in all, are based on the 1920 enumerated population and on the births and deaths which occurred during the calendar years 1919 and 1920 in 27 registration states, the District of Columbia, and the Territory of Hawaii, and relate to about 74 per cent of the total population of the United States and this Territory.

The preparation of these life tables was approved by the Census Advisory Committee, in order that 1919-1920 life tables might be quickly available as a supplement to the United States Life Tables, 1890, 1901, 1910, and 1901-1910, recently prepared in the Bureau of the Census.

A Note on Language

Census statistics date back to 1790 and reflect the growth and change of the United States. Past census reports contain some terms that today’s readers may consider obsolete and inappropriate. As part of our goal to be open and transparent with the public, we are improving access to all Census Bureau original publications and statistics, which serve as a guide to the nation's history.
