Deaths and Mortality Ratios, Borough
JULY 2012 Demographics
Deaths by local authority of usual residence, numbers and standardised mortality ratios (SMRs) by sex.
SMR measures whether the population of an area has a higher or lower number of deaths than expected based on the age profile of the population (more deaths are expected in older populations). The SMR is defined as follows: SMR = (Observed no. of deaths per year)/(Expected no. of deaths per year).
SMRs are calculated using the previous year's mid-year population estimates. Live birth figures are used for calculations involving deaths under 1 year.
The age-standardised mortality rates in this release are directly age-standardised to the European Standard Population, which cover all ages and allows comparisons between populations with different age structures, including between males and females and over time.
Note: SMR and deaths by sex data only available since 2001.
