The leading causes of death were cardiovascular diseases and cancer. 4,137 people passed away in 2017, 1,160 of whom died of cancer.

There was almost no gender disparity - the female mortality rate was almost as high as the male mortality rate.

On average, men died at the age of 73 while women passed away at 80. There was an average of 11 deaths per day, 80 per week, and 345 per month.

According to the Ministry of Health, almost 95% of the people who passed away suffered from an illness.

Around 50% of the people passed away in a hospital, 25% died in a care home and 17% passed away at home. Like in previous years, cardiovascular disease remaind the leading cause of death at 30% even though a decrease in numbers was recorded. 

Cancer mortality has slightly increased to 28%.
