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.
