Points on the map are placed at the centre of the local area they represent and do not show the actual location of deaths.
The size of the circle is proportional to the number of deaths.
The ONS says that, to protect confidentiality, a small number of deaths have been reallocated between neighbouring areas.
Figures exclude deaths of non-residents and are based on May 2020 boundaries.
