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).

Important notes and usage information
If you are looking for the latest data on deaths involving the coronavirus (COVID-19) registered in England and Wales, please see our weekly provisional deaths dataset.
Main points from latest release
- The provisional number of deaths registered in England and Wales in October 2023 was 45,714; this represents an increase of 2,599 deaths in comparison with the previous month and a decrease of 2,702 deaths in comparison with the same month in 2022.
These figures are presented by regions (within England), unitary authorities, counties, districts and London boroughs.
Weekly deaths counts cannot be summed to match the counts for monthly deaths as some weeks may span more than one month.
For information on data quality, legislation and procedures relating to mortality statistics, please see our User guide to mortality statistics.
There is an interactive mapping tool that enables trends in mortality to be analysed at the local level.
