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.
