Demographic Analysis of the Human Communities of Tangier and Smith Islands: Part I
The Objective of this study was to analyze the causes behind the deaths of individuals on Tangier Island pre-1950s to post-1950s. Our methods of research included observing headstones, listing dates of death and assuming sex based on first names. We then did research to find what advancements had been made after the 1950s and such advancements were in healthcare, sanitation, and working conditions, as well as the reduction in war drafts. The data showed that there was in increase in the survivorship of both sexes post-1950, and supported the research that was performed.
