Details

Monitoring excess mortality provides understanding of the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) during the course of the pandemic and beyond. Excess mortality in these weekly analyses is defined as the number of deaths throughout the pandemic that are above the number expected, based on mortality rates in previous years.

In these analyses, the expected number of death registrations is modelled using 5 years of data from preceding years to estimate the number of death registrations expected in each week.

Excess deaths are estimated from 21 March 2020 onwards. They are broken down by age, sex, region, upper tier local authority, ethnic group, level of deprivation, cause of death and place of death.

These are experimental statistics. See guide to experimental statistics.

Excess deaths by region are also available.
