This paper examines the derived indicators from time series data on the movement of Canadian mortality from the high levels of the early decades of this century to the low levels of recent years. The paper emphasizes the trends and levels in various age/cause/sex components of mortality, the increases in life expectancy, the rectangularization of the survival curve, potential years of life lost (PYLL) by leading causes of mortality and the influence of epidemiologic transition and specific cause elimination on the resultant life expectancies at different ages.
