EWM figures are based on deaths occurring in each period (August through to the following July). 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).
Figures for the latest winter are provisional and are rounded to the nearest 100, figures for all other winters are final and are rounded to the nearest 10.
Mean winter temperature is calculated using average monthly temperatures from December to March.
Data include non-residents who died in England or Wales.
