Statistics Finland produces statistics on causes of death and on the development of mortality. It also maintains an archive of death certificates from which information or copies of death certificates can be obtained for purposes prescribed in law. The statistics on causes of death are compiled from data obtained from death certificates, which are supplemented with data from the population information system of the Population Register Centre. The statistics on causes of death cover the persons who have died in Finland or abroad during the calendar year and who at the time of death were domiciled in Finland.
