The annual Eurostat's collections on deaths statistics are structured as follows:

  • NOWCAST: Annual data collection on provisional monthly data on live births and deaths covering at least six months of the reference year (Article 4.3 of the Commission implementing regulation (EU) No 205/2014).

  • DEMOBAL (Demographic balance): Annual data collection on provisional data on population; total live births and total deaths at national level (Article 4.1 of the Commission implementing regulation (EU) No 205/2014).

  • UNIDEMO (Unified Demographic): The most extended annual collection on demography and migration; collecting data at national and regional level for population; births; deaths; immigrants; emigrants; marriages and divorces by a large number of breakdowns. (Art. 3 of the Regulation (EU) No 1260/2013 and Art. 3 of the Regulation (EC) No 862/2007).

The annual demography data collections aim at collecting from the National Statistical Institutes both mandatory data and voluntary data. The mandatory data are those defined by the legislation listed on "6.1. Institutional Mandate - legal acts and other agreements" in the reference metadata.

Data are collected by Eurostat from the National Statistical Institutes. The demographic data collected on voluntary basis depend on the availability and on the quality of information available in the National Statistical Institutes. For more specific information on mandatory/voluntary data collection see '6.1. Institutional Mandate - legal acts and other agreements' in the reference metadata.
