Figures are based on deaths occurring each day. Numbers of deaths from January to July 2015 are provisional, and have been adjusted to take account of late registrations (see Background note 3 in the statistical bulletin).
Five year averages for each day are calculated using data from the previous five years, excluding the current year.
Mortality data include non-residents who died in England or Wales.
