  2. Notes:
  3. PYO = Person years of observation
  4. MM = Maternal causes of death
  5. nax = Average number of person-years lived in the interval by those who have died in the interval
  6. nmx = Mortality rate for people in age group x to x + n
  7. nqx = Probability of dying between ages x and x + n
  8. npx = Probability of surviving between ages x and x + n
  9. lx = Number surviving at each age
  10. ndx = Number of deaths between ages x and x + n
  11. nLx = Person-years lived between ages x and x + n
  12. Tx = Person-years lived beyond age x
  13. ex = Life expectancy at age x
