Underlying cause of death (54-group short list):
The formation of the 54-group classification of causes of death from the basic classifications used in different years
is described on the homepage of the statistics on causes of death under Classifications. The data of this time series are
otherwise comparable, but the classification of pneumonia was adjusted in 2005 and 2006. Then an international guideline was
adopted. Accordingly, pneumonia is not accepted as the underlying cause of death if a chronic disease which has weakened the
organism is mentioned in the death certificate. In such cases the disease in question is recorded as the person's underlying
cause of death. The revision of the classification was gradually taken into use in 2005 and 2006. The adjustment cut the number
of deaths from pneumonia by around one third. The cases mainly moved to dementia and cerebrovascular diseases.
Deaths with no death certificate belong in 1969-1997 to group 40 and from 1998 onwards to group 54.
