On the page ‘Premature mortality’, it was shown that premature mortality rates differ significantly from one district to another in Belgium. Examining the specific causes of death by district provides a better understanding of this disparity and points out more specific health issues in some districts. On this page, you will find four atlases presenting maps by causes of death.
The first two atlases focus on all age mortality and cover the periods 2003-2009 and 2010-2017.
Two atlases focus specifically on premature mortality (below 75 years old).
