Summary 

The Report on Medical Certification of Cause of Deaths (MCCD) in Delhi 2008 covers mortality data from hospitals and all health institutions. Deaths that occur inside a home are not recorded by MCCD. Causes of institutional deaths are certified by medical practitioners. Death registration is collected by three government bodies in Delhi: the MCD (Municipal Corporation of Delhi), the NDMC (New Delhi Municipal Council), and the DCB (Delhi Cantonment Board).

Institutional statistics are provided for (a) deaths by sex, 10-year age group and cause (ICD-10), and (b) infant deaths by sex and cause. The report includes tabulations on number of institutional deaths and institutional infant deaths by sex from 1996 to 2008. In this time series, the report also presents figures on deaths from heart attack, pneumonia, tuberculosis, diabetes, and cancer; number of deaths that occur in a home are provided only for these conditions.
