Follow the preliminary statistics on deaths

| News

During the coming summer months, Statistics Sweden will continue to publish the preliminary weekly statistics on deaths. Unlike in previous weeks, news items will not be published every time the statistics are updated.

The statistics are updated weekly in an Excel file available to download here.

Facts: Preliminary statistics

Statistics Sweden’s preliminary statistics on deaths have been produced to provide rapid access to developments during the coronavirus outbreak, and to enable comparison with previous years. These statistics are reported on Mondays and should be regarded as raw data. The statistics are updated as new data is made available, as there is a lag in reporting, in particular for the days closest to publication.

Statistics from two weeks ago are not expected to change substantially. Statistics for previous years are based on Statistics Sweden’s final observation register. Only persons whose date of death is known are included in the above calculations.

These statistics do not list the cause of death, but rather present the number of deaths among people registered in the population in Sweden.
