Summaries of weekly deaths, which include age, sex as well as subregion of residence of the deceased, are available for all the years from 2000 (Weekly deaths).

The data was prepared by Statistics Poland, taking into account the detailed levels of aggregation, i.e. sex, age groups categorised in 5-year periods, subregions (NUTS-3, according to NUTS2016) and weeks of occurrence. The data contains information about Polish residents only.

The presented time series includes information since 2000. The data will be updated on a monthly basis around the 15th of each month. The data for the period between 2000-2019 is the final data and will not change, while the current data - for 2020 - has the status of preliminary data. Current data will be updated every month by adding subsequent weeks. Due to the methodological aspects of the survey (the process of obtaining and processing data from the register offices), the data from the period of past 4-6 weeks in the time series may not be complete.

Warning! Data by subregions has been compiled according to deceased’s place of residence. Weekly data has been compiled in accordance with ISO8601. This means that the first week of the year can contain days from the previous year, and the last week can contain days from the following year. Therefore, particular weeks of the year do not add up to individual months or the total number of deaths in respective year.

Data on weekly deaths in Poland is also reported to Eurostat. Therefore, we also encourage you to visit the Eurostat database, which collects data on deaths from the EU countries. Thus, analysis of death statistics can be conducted in a wider context.
