Background. The objective of this paper is to present the analysis of mortality in Catalonia during 2018, including the most significant mortality indicators in health and health services and the evolution of a few indicators in recent years. Data and Methods. Data corresponding to deaths occurred in Catalonia during 2018 are obtained, for all live births, from the Medical Certificate of Cause of Death-Death Statistical Bulletin, and for late fetal deaths from birth certificates. The underlying cause of death was coded according to ICD-10. Population data is the postcensus estimation of population in Catalonia on July 1, 2018. Results. In Catalonia in 2018, there were 65,939 deaths among known-age residents (49.97% women and 50.03% men). Mortality was higher than the previous year. However, agestandardised rate was the second lowest since 1983; only the 2016 rate was lower. Life expectancy at birth was 86.28 years for women and 80.76 years for men.
