Summary of request

These tables present rolling annual death registrations by place of occurrence in England, Quarter 1 (Apr to June) of financial year 2015 to 2016, to Quarter 3 (Oct to Dec) 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 on 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 are based on the August 2020 National Statistics Postcode Lookup (NSPL) boundaries. The latest NSPL is available on the ONS Open Geography Portal. Place of occurrence is defined according to the January 2021 (latest) Communal Establishment Lookup.

Please note that 2020 to 2021 data are currently provisional.
