The Death by Numbers project at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (RRCHNM) within George Mason University’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS) provides evidence of the quantitative mindset that developed in England at the turn of the 17th Century with the distribution of mortality statistics that were widely read by the people of London. The statistics were published by London city government officials on a weekly basis in broadsheets titled the Bills of Mortality which provided counts of death recorded by each parish in London along with the cause of death.
