Mary Pat Campbell ยท STUMP – Podcast Making Assumptions About Mortality In 2021 And Future Mortality

This is an experiment — I’ve been doing podcasts over at the substack site, but not mirroring them here. I don’t want to pay for SoundCloud, so if someone knows a better free option, please let me know.

Looking at where the highest relative increases occurred in mortality in 2021 in the U.S. (age 40-44), the causes that drove it (different for different age groups), and thinking about how that may influence future mortality trends.
