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:
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.

Changes as of January 11th 2022:
In the figures of 2020 in some age groups with 'I00-I99 Diseases of the circulatory system' as cause of death, the numbers were invisible. That has now been restored.

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.
