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.

Following feedback, we have used the same method for later updates, but have extended our description and charts of results.

A revised version of Working Paper 111 was issued in April 2019. This updates Section 3.5 to reflect a simpler method used to update the calculations for a new calendar year. It does not affect earlier results.

Further updates are available from the mortality monitor page.
