Description:
During the course of the study, the scope of the work broadened. This was in recognition of the fact that the Form 104 reporting procedure was just one part of the death registration and cause of death determination system. Interviews were carried out with representatives of the agencies involved in this system and a detailed description of the system is provided in Section II of the Technical Report. How the Form 104 reporting system performed in terms of forms being completed for all inquested deaths in 2002 is described in detail in Section III of the Technical Report. Section IV then describes the completeness of the data recorded on Form 104 and, where possible, how consistently these data matched other data collected by the death registration and cause of death determination system. These sections contain detailed technical descriptions which require careful interpretation. As mentioned above, the study focused on inquested deaths that occurred in 2002 and were registered in either 2002, 2003 or 2004. More recently, changes have been made to the death registration and cause of death determination system and specific efforts have been made to improve the Form 104 reporting system. This should be borne in mind when reading Sections II through IV of the Technical Report. The profile of individuals whose deaths result in inquest is unlikely to have changed significantly since 2002. Therefore, the findings from the analysis of the Form 104 data are likely to be valid for more recent years.
