Figures are based on deaths occurring each week. 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).
The method for calculating ILI rates changed for data from week number 201431, so rates from this week onwards are not directly comparable to previous weeks. For more information, see the 'Changes to this bulletin' section of the statistical bulletin.
Mortality data include non-residents who died in England or Wales.
