Summary 

The National Administrative Department of Statistics (DANE) in Colombia provides annual vital statistics data on deaths in the country. DANE processes the data from death certificates. The tabular data are presented by age, sex, cause of death, the department where the death occurred and the department of residence, type of health insurance, and the place of death. A few tables contain maternal mortality numbers. Additional tables on deaths of those under one year of age, external causes of death, and principal causes of death are also available. The causes of death are organized by the Colombia list of 105 causes or the PAHO 6/67 short list, both of which correspond to ICD-10 groups.
