Death cause

Post by sanderson » 06 Aug 2012 07:54

I am finding so many useful lists and queries since migrating but a list of death causes does not appear to be there. Is this possible or do I need to 'wish' for it? Maybe there would need to be a separate event/attribute for this to happen. The ages at death are great but is there a way to get an average? Without saving a list is there a way of having a count of people in a list?
Thanks

You can do this really easily in a custom query. Just create a new individual query and add in the Cause column using the Columns tab.

If you want to you can then exclude any where the Cause is Null.

On the Query result set display the number of records returned is shown in the bottom right corner of the screen.

For average Death Ages you could write a very simple plugin to do this, but I suspect you are looking to do more complex selection from your tree first?
