Underlying cause of death (54-group short list)

A change in the WHO coding rules has reduced pneumonia as an underlying cause since 2005.
Chronic disease mentioned in the death certificate is recorded as the person's underlying cause of death instead of pneumonia.

Deaths with the missing death certificate are included in 1969-1997 in group 40 and from 1998 onwards in group 54.

The key between the 54-group short list and the different Classification of Diseases is described on the homepage of the statistics on causes of death under Classifications.
