Deaths; underlying cause of death (shortlist), sex, age


This table contains the number of deaths in the population of the Netherlands by underlying cause of death (short list), sex and age-group (at time of death).

Since 2013 Statistics Netherlands is using IRIS for automatic coding for cause of death. This improved the international comparison of the data. The change in coding did cause a considerable shift in the statistic. Since 2013 the (yearly) ICD-10 updates are applied.

Data available from: 1950

Status of the figures:
The figures up to and including 2018 are final. The figures for 2019 are provisional.

Changes as of July 1st 2020:
The provisional figures for 2019 have been added.

Changes as of August 7th 2019:
The underlying coding of classification Sex used in this table has been adjusted.
It is now in line with the standard encoding defined by CBS.
The structure and data of the table have not been adjusted.

When will new figures be published?
