Latest news about mortality monitoring in Europe

EuroMOMO will continue the weekly bulletins throughout the winter and would welcome more countries to join EuroMOMO before the start of the influenza season.

EuroMOMO publishes up-to-date weekly bulletins of all-cause mortality levels in up to 19 European countries or regions of countries on this website.

The weekly bulletin is updated every Friday around lunchtime.

All-cause mortality has been within the normal range for all reporting countries.

Data was received from 18 countries or regions* of these 16** were included in the pooled analyses. Pooled analyses show that overall all-cause mortality has been around normal levels during the winter season 2013/2014.

Individual country analyses show a moderate excess mortality in a few countries earlier during the winter season 2013/14. In Spain, a moderate increase in all-cause mortality (Z-scores slightly above 2) among the 15-64 age group was seen in the beginning of 2014 (weeks 2-7). In Ireland, an increase in excess all-cause mortality was seen in those aged 65 years and over in early February (weeks 6 and 7). The excess mortality may be related to increased influenza intensity in these countries, but other factors may also play a role.

Excess mortality levels in most recent weeks are difficult to interpret because adjustment for delayed registrations may be imprecise. Further, results of pooled analyses may vary dependent on which countries were included in the weekly analyses.
Pooled analyses were adjusted for variation between the included countries and for differences in the local delay in reporting.
