Table description


This table contains the number of deaths in the population of the Netherlands by underlying cause of death. The causes of death are shown according to the extensive list of 'three digit codes', by age and sex.

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: 1996

Status of the figures:
All figures are final.

Changes as of December 18th 2020:
The provisional figures for 2019 have been replaced by final figures.

Changes as of July 1st 2020:
- The provisional figures for 2019 have been added.
- The underlying causes of death have been moved from the topics to the selections. The codings used are in line with the standard encoding defined by CBS. The data of the table have not been adjusted.

When will new figures be published?
The aim is to publish provisional figures for 2020 in the third quarter of 2021.
