Abstract
This report, for the first time investigates the trends in the Western Cape empirical cause of death data. It is important to do this in order to glean as much information on trends, but also to identify data quality issues in preparation for further burden of disease analysis and the estimation of death rates. This report investigates the trends in the profiles as recorded by Stats SA.
