The data in the Berkeley Mortality Database (BMD) are provided free of
charge to all interested users. However, we ask that you kindly observe the following
requests and restrictions:
1. In all published work and presentations, please acknowledge the BMD as the source of
the data and provide our complete URL: http://demog.berkeley.edu/~bmd.
In formal publications, it may be appropriate to state the original source(s) of the data
as well (see documentation herein); in such cases, however, please be sure to acknowledge
the BMD as the intermediary.
2. Please do not pass your copy of these data to other users. Rather refer them to the BMD
website, where they may download the data for themselves. Since these data will be updated
frequently (including corrections as we discover them), this practice will help to avoid
the existence of multiple outdated or incorrect versions.
