Appendix to the Eighteenth Annual Report of the Prudential Assurance

Company. (Offices of the Company.)—We have here a set of tables contain- ing three years' experience of the Prudential Assurance Company in its industrial branch, that is, with the lives of artizans and small tradesmen. Some of the results are noteworthy, and the best of them are condensed in a prefatory letter by the secretary. Insurance offices, as a rule, deal with the better class of lives, and the average length of life of those insured is naturally higher than that of the whole population. But the incidents of health and disease are much the same, and in this respect the tables of the Prudential Assurance Company will be generally valuable, besides being founded on certain knowledge.
