Abstract: A random sample of death records of adult males from 1967 to 1970 was chosen from the South Australian Registry of Births, Deaths, and Marriages. The natural parents of these individuals were identified by cross-reference to birth certificates, and an extensive search was made of the death records for these parents. In this manner random families were selected for which, where possible, the cause of death and length of life of each family member were determined. From the information pertaining to the stated cause of death, each individual was assigned to one of five death categories.
