Number of deaths remains at high level in early December
"The trend towards an increased number of deaths that has been in place since early October continues to slow. In the first week of December, the number of deaths was 39% above the five-year average of the same calendar week of the pre-Corona period 2015 to 2019, but significantly below the mortality of the same calendar week of the previous year," said Statistics Austria Director General Tobias Thomas.
Further information on deaths can be found on our website, where an interactive web application – the Atlas of Deaths – also graphically illustrates the development and regional distribution. Detailed results can be found in Statistics Austria's open data repository.
