This table contains information about Dutch residents who died in the given year due to an accident (mainly traffic accidents, accidental falls, drowning or poisoning). The accident may have taken place abroad and/or in the previous year, the date and place of death is the criterion. The data is split by sex and age of the victim. The ICD-10 codes that belong to accidents are V01-W77, W80-X59, Y10-Y19, Y34 and Y85-Y86.
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. For accidents no changes in coding have taken place however.
The persons who died in the MH17 crash in 2014 are not categorized as an accident with an airplane, but as an operation of war (ICD-10 code Y36). These persons are not part of this accidents table.
Data available from 1996 to 2017
Status of the figures:
All figures are final.
Changes as of November 20th 2019:
This table is stopped. All information can be found in the table 'Deaths; cause of death (extensive list), age and sex' and a great part of it in the table 'Deaths; underlying cause of death (shortlist), sex, age'. The fact that on two points the information is shown in a slightly different way has led to confusion and questions throughout the years. This is why the table has been discontinued.
Differences between the discontinued table and the 'short list table' are:
- The short list shows accidental poisoning not including intent unknown;
- The short list shows suffocation including inhalation and ingestion of food causing obstruction to respiratory tract, while this is not shown in the discontinued table.
In paragraph 3 there is a list of links through which substituting information can be found.
When will new figures be published:
