Mortality in institutional households

Weekly mortality in institutional households stands at approximately 750. These deaths include over 600 among people aged 80 years and over. Mortality in the institutional population (70 per 10,000 persons) is higher than in private households (17 per 10,000 persons). This is logical for nursing and care homes: this is where people have reached their final stage in life. Of all people in institutional households, around 40 percent live in a nursing or care home.
(Weekly) mortality among the over-80s in institutional households is usually 4 times higher than among people of the same age in private households. In week 14, mortality among the over-80s in institutional households was 5 times higher than in private households.
