Deaths Time Series Data

Deaths Time Series Data

Last Updated: 29 September 2017

Correction
Table DT.10 has been amended on 7 September 2017. When published, rates for Greater Glasgow and Clyde and Lanarkshire had been calculated using population figures which did not represent the current health board structure for years 1991 to 2001 inclusive. Previous versions of this table have not been revised. Tables DT.09, DT.11 and DT.12 were similarly amended on 29 September.

Information about the basis of these statistics is available from the Vital Events – General Background Information and the Deaths – Background Information pages.

This page contains datasets in Excel format. This data will be particularly useful for users who would like the same data for a series of different years rather than just for one year.

Note 1: Tables are mainly offered for the purposes of extracting figures. Due to the size of some of the files they are not recommended for printing.

Note 2: If you experience difficulty downloading the files. Please contact our Statistics Customer Services at the e-mail address below and request a disk with the full file.

Workbooks which contain data for several years

The following workbooks provide the data for several years in the form of a separate spreadsheet for each year, which has a table of figures for that year. They are not conventional time series tables because they do not have a separate row (or column) for each year. However, they do provide a more detailed breakdown of the figures for each year than the conventional time series tables, because the tables in these workbooks cross-classify each area's deaths in each year by sex and by age group, and they use more detailed age groups than the time series tables.
