A correction has been made to the relative age standardised mortality rates (rASMRs) for persons of all ages for France, used in the “Comparisons of all-cause mortality between European countries and regions” data tables, tab “rASMRs – Countries”. This is due to an error when compiling data for this table: data for another geography was inserted for France in error. The error affected only ‘all ages’ figures, not the figures by age, and only France as a whole. Subnational breakdowns are not affected. You can see the original content in the superseded version. We apologise for any inconvenience.

An error was identified in the downloadable data set, tab ‘ASMRS - Countries’. The age-standardised mortality rate (ASMR) values for Age group 0-64 and Age group 65+ for all countries on that tab, for all weeks up to the end of 2019, were accidentally transposed during formatting of the dataset. Only the downloadable data set was affected, not the figures or charts in the accompanying article. We apologise for any inconvenience.
