Local Mortality Dataset

This repository contains local-level data on all-cause mortality in 2015–2021.
Local is any sub-national unit - whether state, province, region, city etc.
Local Mortality is a sister-project of World Mortality, Priority is given to local mortality information from countries which are not present in World Mortality or have very partial information on World Mortality.

Sources vary by local unit, see below.
We are currently providing data for 13 Local Units from 9 Countries.
We welcome any contributions.

Local Mortality coverage

Notes:

  • Many of our sources come from news articles citing just a few data points per local unit - Data is most likely highly incomplete. Use with caution.
  • For inclusion, we require at least one data point from 2020 onward and at least one data point prior to 2020.
  • We only collect weekly, monthly, or quarterly data.
  • We only provide all-cause mortality numbers, without splitting by age or gender.
  • For some Local Units we do not have raw data prior to 2020 but rather a mean or a forecast. We denote this as year = 0 in the dataset.
