Population sizes for your dataset: Deaths by vaccination status, England

Tom made this Freedom of Information request to Office for National Statistics

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was successful.

Dear Office for National Statistics,

You have released a dataset about Deaths occurring between 1 January and 31 December 2021 here: https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationa...

In your methodology article https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationa... you state that ASMR is based on the ESG, death rate and population for an age group. You have a column for the "Number of deaths" but not population.

Please can you release the population sizes used for all data in this dataset or at least for: "Table 7: Monthly age-standardised mortality rates by age-group and vaccination status for all deaths, per 100,000 person-years, England, deaths occurring between 1 January 2021 and 31 December 20211,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11"

I am looking for the size of the population per age group per vaccination status per month.

Yours faithfully,

Tom Macleod
