FUNERA: Reflections on Australia’s 2020 Mortality Trends

FUNERA: REFLECTIONS ON AUSTRALIA'S 2020 MORTALITY TRENDS


The year 2020 brought unprecedented challenges, with the global pandemic casting a long shadow over daily life. Surprisingly, despite the widespread impact of COVID-19, the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) reports a decrease in the overall mortality rate, challenging expectations.
THE TOP CAUSES OF DEATH IN AUSTRALIA DURING 2020

  1. Heart disease
  2. Dementia (including Alzheimer's)
  3. Stroke (Cerebrovascular diseases)
  4. Lung cancer
  5. Chronic lower respiratory diseases
The Decline In Mortality Was Widespread Across The Nation, With All Regions Except The Australian Capital Territory Reporting Fewer Death Registrations.
BIRTHS AND THE PANDEMIC


While deaths declined, there was also a nearly four per cent decrease in births in 2020, according to Statista. Approximately 294,400 babies were born, down from 306,200 in 2019. Speculation about a pandemic baby boom remains inconclusive, with official ABS 2020 birth figures scheduled for release in December 2021.
