Thisbirefs examines mortality among young children in the period
from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century. It does so using
several types and sources of informationfrom the census unit
England and Wales, and from Ireland. The sources of information
used in this study include memoirs, diaries, poems, church records
and numerical accounts. They offer descriptions of the quality of
life and child mortality over the three centuries under study.
Additional sources for the nineteenth century are two
census-derived numerical indexes of the quality of life. They are
the VICQUAL index for England and Wales, and the QUALEIRE index for
Ireland. Statistical procedures have been applied to the numbers
provided by the sources with the aim to identify effects of and
associations between such variables as gender, age, and social
background. Thebriefs examines the results to consider the impact
ofchildren s deaths upon parents and families, and concludes that
there are differences andcontinuities across the centuries.
