Death rate in the United Kingdom 2000-2017 Between 2000 and 2017 the death rate of the United Kingdom fluctuated between a high of 10.4 deaths per 1,000 people in 2000 and a low of 8.7 in 2011. From 2011 onwards the death rate creeped up slightly and in the most recent year of 2017, reached 9.2.
Over 600 thousand deaths in 2017 alone
Although there was a net decrease of around three thousand deaths recorded in the United Kingdom between 2000 and 2017, the year with the lowest number of deaths was 2011 when there were just over 552 thousand deaths recorded.

Improvements to life expectancy slowing
In 2017, life expectancy in the United Kingdom reached approximately 83 years old for women and 79 years old for men. This marked an increase of around 2.5 years for women and about 3.5 years for men. Despite these developments, improvements to life expectancy have slowed down in recent years, with increases of zero weeks for women between 2015 and 2017 and almost zero for men in the same period.
