Data source

The statistics were gathered from the National Board of Health and Welfare's cause of death data online [2023-06-19] and have been processed by NASP.

Statistics for the years before 2022 (i.e 2021 and earlier) have been adjusted retroactively by the National Board of Health and Welfare, and may therefore deviate somewhat from statistics reported before 2023-06-19.
