Melinek, S.J., 1973. LOSS OF LIFE EXPECTANCY DUE TO FIRE. Fire Research Notes 978
A method is presented for the calculation of the probability that death will be due to a given cause and the reduction of life expectancy. Figures are derived, based on mortality statistics for England and Wales, for use in this calculation. Values are worked out for the probability of death due to fire in Great Britain, the number of years of life lost and the reduction of life expectancy.
