Section 1: Summary

Standardised rates and standardised mortality ratios

Information about the basis of these statistics is contained in the notes on ‘Age and Age Standardisation’ which are available via the Vital Events – General Background Information page on this website. 

Revision of birth, marriage and death rates, and removal of the breaks in the time-series of population estimates and population-based rates that were caused by the rebasing of population estimates to use the results of the 2011 Census

Tables 1.1(a), 1.1(b) and 1.2 were replaced, on 19 February 2014, by versions giving, for the years from 2002 to 2011, the 'rebased' mid-year population estimates and/or revised rates which had been calculated using the rebased estimates. Until then, the versions of these tables that were available had breaks in the time-series. More information about this is given on the Birth and deaths rates: breaks in series circa 2011 page of this website.
