Mortality 2014 data tables

Published online: 
26 October 2017

These tables contain information on the underlying causes of all deaths registered in New Zealand in 2014. These are the final mortality figures for 2014 and update the data presented in the Mortality 2014 online tables (provisional) published in December 2016.  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.
