      Just spotted an oddity in the results of the Statistics module, which I have enabled on the Home Page:

      In ‘viewing statistics as a graph’, I note that ‘ total living’ appears as 59.3%, ‘total dead’ as 40.7%. As only 20% of my individuals were born after 1900, this is clearly not a valid statistic; in fact I have a feeling it may be the percentage for whom no death has been recorded.Should the Statistics module not use the ‘age at which an individual should be assumed dead’ from the Family Tree Configuration – Privacy tab (where I have ‘106’ ) or is there somewhere else in Admin where I should influence the logic of the Statistics module?

      Could you please clarify Nigel.

      Thanks
      Ron

      Do you routinely use the Batch Update tool “Add missing death records”? This sets a 1 DEAT Y record for any individual not otherwise declared dead, and older than the ‘age at which an individual should be assumed dead’ setting.

      It solves your issue here, and also has a positive effect on the speed of your system That is because calculating privacy is a complex and resource-hungry algorithm for any individual not declared “dead”.

      No – I have never used it – but will do so now.
      Many thanks.
