Correction 20 January 2023 - An error was found in the population data used to calculate 2021 rates in this publication. This has been corrected, with the overall Scotland avoidable mortality rate for 2021 changing from 350 deaths per 100,000 population to 347 deaths per 100,000. There were minor changes also to council and health board rates, but not for rates by SIMD which used a different population file.
Note: Figures for England, Wales and GB as a whole may not always be on exactly the same basis as National Records of Scotland (NRS) figures: there can be differences in the coverage of what at first sight appear to be the same statistics.
