Please provide the following information:

The main topic is UK deaths for the the 5 years of 2015 to 2019 where the cause of death included a respiratory condition. I am interested in deaths that include the conditions mentioned below regardless of whether these were the primary cause or not.

This means the victim would have died of either; one of the conditions listed below or a pre-existing condition and one of the conditions listed below.

Please can the data be grouped using all the following identifiers:-
Geography identifier - UK
Timescale identifier  -  By Year
Gender identifier - Male/Female
Pre-existing condition - Yes/No
Condition identifiers:-

  • asthma
  • bronchitis
  • emphysema
  • pneumonia
  • influenza

NB - Please do not provide individual datasets grouped by one identifier at a time as this would obscure data for analysis. It is vital that all the identifiers are included in the same dataset and all identifiers are used for grouping and aggregating

I would expect the results to look something like the example layout below:-
Geo / Time / Gender / Pre-existing Condition? / Condition / Volume
UK / 2015 / Male / Yes / Influenza / 101
UK / 2016 / Male / Yes / Pneumonia / 102
UK / 2017 / Male / Yes / Influenza / 103
UK / 2018 / Male / Yes / Influenza / 104
UK / 2019 / Male / Yes / Pneumonia / 101
UK / 2015 / Male / No / Influenza / 101
UK / 2016 / Male / No / Influenza / 102
UK / 2017 / Male / No / Influenza / 103
UK / 2018 / Male / No / Pneumonia / 104
UK / 2019 / Male / No / Influenza / 101
