Published online: 
30 November 2016


These tables contain information on the underlying causes of all deaths registered in New Zealand in 2013. A ‘Quick facts’ section includes information on rates of death by ethnicity and selected causes of mortality.

Information is broken down by age, sex, ethnicity, district health board and ICD-10-AM statistical classification chapters, subgroups and three character codes.

These tables form part of the Mortality and Demographic Data annual series. A full publication, based on this data, is planned but a release date has not been set.

This data is sourced from the Mortality Collection.
