Vital Events Reference Tables 2008

Vital Events Reference Tables 2008

Section 5: Deaths

Note: the death rates given in the tables in this section have been superseded. They were produced using the original mid-year population estimates for 2002 onwards, which have been superseded by 'rebased' population estimates which take account of the results of the 2011 Census. Revised versions of these figures (which were produced using the 'rebased' population estimates) can be obtained from revised versions of the Vital Events Reference Tables for 2012.

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.
