Note: "----" means data not available.

Rows do not sum to the listed totals because not all causes of registered deaths are listed on this table.

To calculate the percent of registered deaths in a country that were due to a particular cause, divide the number of registered deaths in a country due to a certain cause by the total number of registered deaths in the country and multiply the result by 100. Example: Calculate the percent of registered deaths in Hungary due to accidental falls. This calculation would be 3,067/135,601=.023 and .023x100=2.3%
