COVID-19 "excess deaths"

18th June 2020

Our colleague Francisco Ruiz has carried out an analysis to find out the excess number of deaths during the COVID-19 pandemic in each province of Spain based on data from the civil registries, recently published by the INE. The excess deaths are obtained by comparing the figures for deaths during the same period of time in 2020 and the average of the previous four years. In this way it is possible to have an approximation of the real impact that the epidemic has had in the different provinces in terms of mortality, measured as the excess of deaths per 100 thousand inhabitants.

A summary of the study can be downloaded HERE.

The study has made headlines in several media outlets:
