[Editor's note: Each year, countries submit their cause of death and population data to WHO. Unless an error is detected, a number of deaths is unlikely to change after processing. However, as WHO reviews its data in the wake of each national census, minor changes can be made to calculated death rates. These could account for any differences which might appear following the date on which a death rate was originally posted.]
