Provides files to download data as it existed for this dataset on previous dates.
Statistics are most often revised for 1 of 2 reasons:
- For certain statistics initial estimates are released with the expectation that these may be revised and updated as further data becomes available.
- Revisions may also be made when methods or systems are changed.
These types of planned revisions should not be confused with errors in released statistics, which are genuine mistakes. Such mistakes occur rarely and, when they do happen, corrections are made in a timely manner, announced and clearly explained to users in line with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics (Principle 2, Practice 7).

We have corrected an error in tables 4a,4b,4c,5a,5b and 5c. The previous version included deaths that were not statistically significant in the ‘All statistically significant temperature-related causes’ category. The ‘non-temperature related causes’ were also incorrect as they did not include the deaths which were not significantly related to temperature. There should have only been statistically significant causes of death included in the ‘all statistically significant temperature related cause’ category and the ‘non-temperature related causes’ should have included the causes that were not statistically significant. We have corrected typographical errors in reference tables 2a, 2c, 7b, 7c, 8a, 8b, 8c and the contents page. The previous version of 2a included values for 2020 under the headings ‘non-temperature related deaths’ and ‘other deaths’. It should have included data for 2019. The previous version of 2c included inverted values for two rows of data under the heading ‘change due to more warm days’. This affected the corresponding net values. The pervious versions of 7b, 7c and the contents page had typographical errors in the title and 8 a, 8b and 8c had a typographical error in the heading above one data column. This happened because of a human error.

We have corrected an error in tables 4a, 4b, 4c, 5a, 5b and 5c. The previous version included deaths that were not statistically significant in the 'All statistically significant temperature-related causes' category. This also meant that the 'Non-temperature related causes' was incorrect as it did not include these non signicant causes of death. There should have only been statistically significant causes of death in the 'All statistically significant temperature-related cause' catergory and the 'Non-temperature related causes' should have included the ones that were not statistically significant. This happened because of a human error.
