Summary of request

These tables present rolling annual death registrations by place of occurrence in England, Quarter 1 (Apr to Jun) of financial year 2018 to 2019, to Quarter 1 (Apr to Jun) of financial year 2021 to 2022.

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 2021 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 August 2021 (latest) Communal Establishment Lookup.

Please note that data for 2021 and 2022 data are currently provisional. We update every quarter (Feb; May; Aug; Nov) and provide an annual refresh every August. The refresh provides a revision of data from provisional to final death registrations (up to the latest point that finalised data are available) and a revision of the entire data series based on the latest geographic boundaries.
