Number of deaths increases again slightly
"The number of weekly deaths increased in calendar week 16 for the second time in a row in 2021. Mortality was thus 10.7% above the average value of the same calendar week of the five previous years 2016 to 2020. Similar values had last occurred in mid-January," said Tobias Thomas, Director General of Statistics Austria.
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.
