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.
Deaths of non-residents are excluded for England, Wales and Northern Ireland and included for Scotland.
Figures are for deaths registered in each calendar year.
The "Other" cause group consists of nutritional, endocrine and metabolic disorders, neurological disorders, digestive disorders, genitourinary disorders, and maternal and infant conditions.
See accompanying datasets for further details of the underlying causes of death included in the avoidable mortality definition.
