Definitions

Data is provided by the Nomis Mortality Statistics dataset. This dataset provides mortality statistics for England and Wales, broken down by calendar year, sex and underlying cause of death (classified using ICD10, the International Classification of Diseases, 10th revision).

Death statistics are compiled from information supplied when deaths are certified and registered as part of civil registration, a legal requirement.

For more information, please see Nomis Mortality Statistics Quality and Methodology Information. This document contains important information on the strengths and limitations of the data, the quality of the output including the accuracy of the data, how it compares with related data, uses and users and how the output was created.

This indicator is being used as an approximation of the UN SDG Indicator. Where possible, we will work to identify or develop UK data to meet the global indicator specification. This indicator has been identified in collaboration with topic experts.

Other information

Figures by area of usual residence may differ slightly to other published figures available on the ONS website. This is because the boundary files used to derive geography information (National Statistics Postcode Lookup (NSPL)) are updated quarterly which can result in small differences.

Other information

Age-standardised mortality rates per 100,000 population are standardised to the 2013 European Standard Population. Age-standardised rates are used to allow comparison between populations which may contain different proportions of people of different ages. More information on the calculation of age-standardised rates is available in our User Guide to Mortality Statistics

Rates are suppressed when the number of deaths is less than 5 which is often the case when looking at mid-level super output area data or looking at detailed cause of death. The source data contains separate death rates per 100,000 population for England and for Wales, and death rates by cause of death which have not been included here. This is because in some instances the number of deaths are very small (less than 10), meaning the rate is statistically unreliable.
