*Important note: The analysis of deaths in 2011 highlighted that there was a decrease in the number of deaths with an underlying cause coded to 'Cardiovascular Disease'. However, a large proportion of this decrease appears to be caused by a correction to the coding which reclassified deaths, coded until 2010, as cerebrovascular disease (ICD-10; I67.9) to vascular dementia (ICD-10; F01) assigned now to 'Mental and Behavioural Disorders'.
