(1) ‘Hospital’ includes NHS and non-NHS hospitals or multifunction sites, and military hospitals.
(2) Cause of death was defined using the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision (ICD-9) codes 260-269 (malnutrition) for the years 1998 to 2000, and the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10) codes E40-E46 (malnutrition) for 2001 onwards. The introduction of ICD-10 in 2001 means that the numbers of deaths from each cause before 2001 are not completely comparable with later years.
(3) Based on boundaries as of 2009.
(4) Figures are for deaths registered in each calendar year.
