Mortality rate in Spain 2006-2018

The number of deaths in Spain experienced an upward trend over the 12-year period, presumably due to the aging population. Owing to this setup, the Spanish mortality rate went up from 8.33 in 2006 to 9.10 in 2018. 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.
