Notes:
The mortality figures in this table are based on number of "registered" deaths.

* Classification of diseases and causes of death is based on the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD) 10th Revision from 2001 onwards. Figures presented above may not be comparable with figures for years before 2001 which were compiled based on the ICD 9th Revision. The disease codes according to the classification are shown in brackets.

† According to the ICD 10th Revision, when the morbid condition is classifiable under Chapter XIX as "injury, poisoning and certain other consequences of external causes", the codes under Chapter XX for "external causes of morbidity and mortality" should be used as the primary cause of death.
