Ogden Tables
Last revised April 13, 2018


The Ogden Tables are prepared by the British Government Actuary's Department. The first edition was published in 1984, the latest (seventh) edition in 2011. The tables are used in personal injury cases to assess the present capital values of future annual losses or expenses based on mortality rates and projected future mortality rates.

The House of Lords endorsed the use of the Ogden Tables in deciding Wells v. Wells, [1998] UKHL 27, [1999] 1 AC 345, [[1998] 3 All ER 481, [1998] 3 WLR 329
