Mortality monitoring in Europe

European mortality bulletin week 15, 2017

Link to printable version

The majority of participating European countries have had a marked excess in all-cause mortality, since the end of 2016; in particular among elderly aged 65 years and above. However, mortality has normalised again.
This seasons excess mortality coincided with circulation of influenza A(H3N2), which usually leads to increased mortality among elderly. Some countries have also experienced extremely cold weather in the beginning of the year, which also may have contributed to the excess mortality.

Data from 20 countries or regions were received this week and were all included in the pooled analysis of excess all-cause mortality.

The excess mortality in the past weeks should be interpreted with caution because adjustments for delayed registrations may be imprecise. Furthermore, results of pooled analyses may vary depending on countries included in the weekly analyses. Pooled analyses are adjusted for variation between the included countries and for differences in the local delay in reporting. Further details are available on http://www.euromomo.eu
