Total number of deaths in the Netherlands from 2007 to 2017

by Brigitte van de Pas, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Total number of deaths in the Netherlands 2007-2017 Between 2007 and 2017, each year between 133,000 and 150,000 people died in the Netherlands. From 2014 onwards, the number of deaths increased annually, peaking in 2017 at roughly 150,000. That year, women were on average 81 years old when they died, men were five years younger.
 Neoplasms most common cause of death 

  The most common causes of death in 2017 were neoplasms and diseases of the circulatory system, which made approximately 46,500 and 38,100 victims respectively. That year, only three women died as a result of pregnancy complications and childbirth in the Netherlands. Fatal skin diseases were relatively rare as well, with less than 300 deaths.

Birth excess

    The Netherlands has a birth excess: each year the number of live births exceeds the number of deaths in the country. Although some 150,000 people died in 2017, the birth of nearly 170,000 babies meant the Netherlands still had a birth excess of almost 20,000. In the last decade, the birth excess dropped considerably though, from nearly 50,000 people in 2007 to just under 20,000 in 2017.
