The decade from 2011 saw over a million people dying earlier than they otherwise would have done had they experienced the death rates seen in the least deprived decile of areas.
148,000 of these deaths were additional to what might have been expected based on levels in the two years prior to 2011.
In 2020, the level of excess deaths rose by a further 28,000 compared to that over the previous five years.
