layout: page title: Excess Mortality by Country link: /excess-mortality/
I recently did a Twitter thread about ‘excess mortality’ and why it’s a very useful quanitity to observe to better understand the impact of COVID-19/SARS-CoV-2. You can read that thread here. In short, ‘excess mortality’ means: How many more people died this year than died on average over the last few years?
This means we gather data on all deaths above what we expect - even if their official cause of death was not COVID-19.
I reached out to people on Twitter to try and gather links to country’s data on excess mortality, if available. Here’s what I managed to gather!
