We have identified an error with the data contained within the 'Deaths and age specific death rates by age group' table on Page 3 of the Council Area Profiles.   The correct data for each council area can be found within Section 5  of the Vital Events Reference Tables.

We will be updating the Council Area Profiles in due course.  Please contact our Statistics Customer Services if you need any further information.
