Abstract

    The Death Records dataset of Scotland contains administrative records about mortality events occurred in Scotland since 1974. Typically, information that is collected on the registration form includes name and address, date and cause of death, duration of illness as well as the occupation of the deceased. The cause of death is recorded on a medical certificate and must be taken at the time of registration. Arrangements for the registration of a stillbirth follow roughly the same process.

    All deaths in Scotland must be registered within eight days by a Local Registrar. Then, every death registered is entered by a Local Registrar onto the Forward Electronic Register (FER) system. This is a live computer system linked to National Records of Scotland. The information is then transferred to the National Records of Scotland Vital Events statistical database where quality checks are carried out on each record. The paper records are sent by Local Registrars to National Records of Scotland (NRS) in January of each year.

    The registration of a death in Scotland is controlled by the Registration of Births, Deaths and Marriages (Scotland) Act 1965. The Act controls the registration system of births, deaths and marriages in Scotland, including the provision of statistics to Scottish Ministers and the power to the Registrar General authority to correct errors in entries.

    Information on Scottish deaths has been recorded since 1855 when it became compulsory. However, information in the National Records of Scotland database is available from 1974 onwards. All Vital Events which occur in Scotland should be registered in Scotland, even if the people involved are residents of other countries. Registrations do not include Scottish residents who have died abroad. Information on deaths in England and Wales is recorded by the Office for National Statistics. In Northern Ireland it is recorded by the Department for Finance and Personnel.

    The classification of the underlying cause of death is based on the information collected on the death certificate together with any additional information provided by other official sources. The cause of death codes may change if additional information is provided by a GP, Consultant or Procurators Fiscal. For deaths registered from 1 January 2000, the causes of death have been coded in accordance with the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (ICD-10). Deaths which were registered in 1999 were coded using both ICD-9 and ICD-10, in order to obtain an indication of the effect on the figures of the change in the classification. The complexity of the ICD-10 rules can result, in some cases, in the underlying cause of death coded by National Records of Scotland differing from that which was recorded on the original death certificate.

    The National Records of Scotland Death Records data is of a high standard and is the most reliable death dataset available in Scotland. Automatic quality checks are carried out by the National Records of Scotland computer system at the point of entry by the Local Registrar and further checks are then carried out by staff once the information has been passed into the National Records of Scotland Vital Events statistical database.

    Research Usage and Linkage

    The National Records of Scotland Death Records data are used in combination with other Vital Events statistics to produce a wide variety of health statistics and research and answer parliamentary questions. For example the figures contribute to debate and the development of policy on issues such as ‘fuel poverty’ and the health of the elderly, winter fuel payments, and programmes for seasonal flu vaccination, central heating installation and home insulation.

    The Scottish Government use the data for the development of health related policy including alcohol and drug related deaths and also suicides. It is also used to monitor their National Indicators, specifically to reduce mortality from coronary heart disease among the under 75s in deprived areas and to target population growth. It is also used to estimate life expectancy in order to assess the scale of inequalities in health between different population sub-groups, and how Scotland compares with other countries.

    The Information Services Division (ISD) of NHS National Services Scotland also widely use the data for health related research including cancer mortality, drug and alcohol misuse and also for the calculation of standardised mortality ratios for individual hospitals and the monitoring of unusual increases or patterns in deaths. In particular, the Death Records data are part of the ISD Scottish Morbidity Database, which links together NHS Scotland’s inpatient, mental health and cancer registry datasets with the NRS Death Records. Furthermore, NRS Stillbirth and infant death records are also part of NHS Scotland’s Maternity and Neonatal Linked Database. This database contains obstetric histories of mothers giving birth since 1981.

    National Records of Scotland Death Registration data are also used as part of the Scottish Longitudinal Study (SLS). This is a large-scale linkage study which has been created using data from a range of government statistical administrative sources. The SLS website provides a high quality longitudinal research dataset that can be used to provide an insight into the health and social status of the Scottish population and how it changes over time.

    In theory the National Records of Scotland Death Records can be linked to other datasets with common identifiable fields such as name, address and postcode.
