Summary of request
These tables present rolling annual death registrations by place of occurrence in England, Quarter 1 (April to June) of financial year 2015 to 2016 to Quarter 2 (July to September) of financial year 2020 to 2021.
This is a performance indicator for end of life care. It focuses on place of death, namely "Usual place of residence". "Usual place of residence" includes deaths that occurred at home, care home or religious establishment. The number and proportion of deaths that occurred at home, hospital, care home, hospice or elsewhere are also presented. Further information these tables is available in the data file.
The indicator is produced quarterly on a rolling 12-month basis for all Strategic Clinical Networks (SCN), Public Health England (PHE) centres, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) and Local Authorities (LA) in England.
These data have been revised and are now based on the August 2020 National Statistics Postcode Lookup (NSPL) boundaries. This revision was due to significant boundary changes to SCN areas; as a result there may also be minor changes to the distribution of deaths in the other geographic areas presented. The latest NSPL is available on the ONS Open Geography Portal. Place of occurrence is defined according to the October 2020 (latest) Communal Establishment Lookup.
Please note that 2020 to 2021 data are currently provisional.
