A certain amount of rounding is carried out during the calculation process. This is as follows:
All ages or time period measurements are rounded to 3 decimal places and take into account leap years (for example: If the period from the birthday before the trial to the next birthday contains 29 February then that year is treated as a 366 day year, otherwise it is a 365 day year).
All calculated contingencies for factors other than mortality are rounded to 3 decimal places.
All calculated multipliers/discounts are rounded to 3 decimal places.
