At the same time, Istat releases data on daily deaths for all municipalities updated up to December 2020. The daily mortality database, made available by Istat for monitoring of deaths, is consolidated 45 days after the date of the event through the integration of population register sources (ANPR and municipalities) with the data of the Tax Register. The Report also provides an estimate of deaths at regional level, only 15 days later than Istat availability, for all causes that occurred in January 2021.
