In Hackney, 0.4% of the resident population (just over 1,000 people) die each year; in the City of London, about 0.5% of the resident population die each year (around 30 people).

In Hackney, life expectancy in males is 78.7, and in females it is 82.8; in the City, it is 86.1 in males and 89.0 in females (based on 2010-14 data). This compares to 80.2 in males and 84.1 in females nationally.

Life expectancy is considered to be a key indicator of health in a population.
