Table description


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 software 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:
Figures up until and including 2020 are final. Figures of 2021 are provisional.

Changes as of June 23rd 2022:
- The provisional figures for 2021 have been added.
- The figures of average population have been revised for the years 2019 and 2020 to ensure that the calculation is similar to the calculations of the years preceding 2019.

Changes as of August 18th 2021:
As of 2020 'COVID-19' has been added to the causes of death.

When will new figures be published?
The aim is to publish final figures for 2021 in the fourth quarter of 2022.
