Figures are based on deaths occurring each day. Numbers of deaths from January to July 2016 are provisional, and have been adjusted to take account of late registrations (see the Excess Winter Mortality Quality and Methodology Information document).
5 year averages for each day are calculated using data from the previous 5 years, excluding the current year.
Mortality data include non-residents who died in England or Wales.
