Number of deaths in Spain 2006-2018

According to data provided by the Spanish Statistics Institute, more people died in Spain than were being born in 2018, with figures reaching over 427 thousand deaths versus 370 thousand newborns. The number of deaths experienced an upward trend over the 11-year period, presumably due to Spain’s aging population.

Circulatory system diseases and cancer ranked as the most common causes of death in Spain

The cause of death can vary significantly across the globe and depends highly on economic development, presence of a competent healthcare system and one’s choices in lifestyle. In Spain, diseases related to the circulatory system and neoplasms (cancer) ranked as the main causes of death, both with over 100 thousand cases in 2017. The annual number of deaths as a result of a disease of the circulatory system maintained steadily over the most recent years, with the illness being more common among female than male individuals.
