    "This report contains papers presented at a workshop held at the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) on March 7, 1991. The workshop was held in order to address concerns arising from the use of the 1940 U.S. population as a standard for age adjustment of vital rates and to review issues surrounding the use of alternative standards from a variety of perspectives. Participants included representatives of selected Federal Government agencies, the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics, the State of Michigan, and present and former NCHS staff." - p. iii
