Hlth1513 Death registrations

Added to StatsWales: April 2013
Next update: March 2014 (provisional)

This table shows the number of deaths which were registered during the year.
Data for 2004 on is the cause of death as given in the death register and based on the doctor's certificate of cause of death; this is known as 'original' cause of death. Previous data is based on 'final' cause of death which takes account of any additional information provided by medical practitioners or coroners after the death has been registered.
The figures for individual cause categories exclude deaths aged under 28 days.

The software used by ONS to code cause of death was updated in 2011 (from ICD-10 v2001.2 to v2010), and incorporated amendments to the modification tables and selection rules used to assign underlying cause of death from the conditions recoded on the death certificate. Overall, the impact of these changes was small, but some causes of death were affected more than others, and so figures for 2011 are not directly comparable with previous years. More information is given in the ONS statistical bulletin ‘Results from the ICD-10 v2010 bridge coding study’.
