Age-standardised mortality rates are expressed per 100,000 population and standardised to the 2013 European Standard Population. Age-standardised mortality rates are used to allow comparison between populations which may contain different proportions of people of different ages.
Figures for England, Northern Ireland and Wales exclude deaths of non-residents. Figures for Scotland include deaths of non-residents.
