Regular monitoring of England & Wales population mortality

Over the past few years the CMI has published various analyses of mortality in the general population in England & Wales, using provisional weekly deaths data published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS). We now intend to publish an “England & Wales population mortality update” along similar lines every quarter.

CMI Working Paper 111 describes the data and our proposed method and includes the provisional first analysis, based on data to 28 September 2018. The figures underlying the charts are available to download as a separate spreadsheet.

We ask that any feedback on our proposals is sent to by 30 November 2018, so that it can be considered in time for the next release, due in January 2019.

Future updates will be available from the mortality monitor page.
