Abstract

A total of 26,203 of the deaths in Jerez de los Caballeros (Badajoz) during the 19th century were collected and grouped according to the Bertillon's classification, in order to study the causes of death from rheumatic diseases. An analysis was made using the death registers, those located in the Parish archives, and files of the municipal archives. There were a total of 31 deaths due to rheumatic diseases, with the 65–74 years age group being most frequent. The lack of records may be due to the inaccuracy of the diagnoses. September was the month of increased mortality.

Resumen

Se han recopilado 26.203 defunciones en Jerez de los Caballeros (Badajoz) durante el siglo xix, agrupándolas según la clasificación de Bertillon, para estudiar las causas de muerte por enfermedades reumáticas, mediante el análisis de los Libros de Defunción del Archivo Parroquial y legajos del Archivo Municipal. Se halla un total de 31 fallecidos, siendo el segmento entre 65–74 años el que presenta las mayores cifras. La escasez de registros puede ser debida a la inexactitud de los diagnósticos. El mes con mayor mortalidad es septiembre.
