Death Statistics have been prepared since 1858 and constitute one of the most traditional works in the INE. It collects data on deaths occurring in Spain, as well as the socio-demographic characteristics of the deceased.

It is carried out in collaboration with the Autonomous Communities. Data is collected through the so-called Medical Death Certificate/Statistical Death Bulletin>. This document is filled out by the doctor, who certifies the death in the section related to personal data and cause of death. The Civil Registry in which the death is registered fills out the data related to the registration and the declarant or the relatives, fill out the data related to residence, nationality and profession of the deceased. In the case of deaths occurring in special circumstances and in which a court is involved, the information is filled out by the court.
