Vital Events Reference Tables 2010

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 on the Vital Events – General Background Information page (available on this website).

Note: the population estimates, birth, marriage and death rates and standardised mortality ratios given in the tables in this section have been superseded. They were produced using the original mid-year population estimates for 2002 onwards, which have been superseded by 'rebased' population estimates which take account of the results of the 2011 Census. In most cases, revised versions of these figures (which were produced using the 'rebased' population estimates) can be found on this website:

More information about the rebasing of the mid-year estimates, and the consequential temporary break in some of the Vital Events statistics series (such as birth rates and death rates) is available from the Births and Deaths Rates: breaks in series circa 2011 section of this website.
