Number of births and deaths by County, with rates (per 1000), showing the the excess of births over deaths and the natural increase rate

This dataset compares birth, death and marriage registrations completed by the Office of the Registrar General, beginning in 1925, to the most current published annual report (2019). Data released for 2020 and 2021 (January to December) is preliminary and may not match counts from other sources. The data represents counts in the reference calendar quarters, which are collated approximately 90 days after the end of the quarter. Previously released counts for 2020 and 2021 are updated to reflect vital event registrations completed after the release of the initial report.
"The opioid crisis has affected every part of the country, but there are clear differences in death rates and the substances involved across provinces and territories. According to data reported as of March 22, 2018:

88% were accidental (unintentional)
from January to September 2017, there were at least 2,923 apparent opioid-related deaths; 92% were accidental
72% of accidental apparent opioid-related deaths involved fentanyl or fentanyl analogues, compared to 55% in 2016
most accidental apparent opioid-related deaths occurred among males (76%) and among individuals between the ages of 30 and 39 (28%)
it is expected that these numbers will change as additional data become available"
