This is a performance indicator for end of life care. It focuses on place of death, namely 'usual place of residence', as a proxy marker for quality. 'Usual place of residence' includes deaths that occurred at home, care home or religious establishment. The number and proportion of deaths that occurred at home, hospital, care home and hospice are also presented. Figures are based on death registration information collected by the Office for National Statistics (ONS). Data for the last ten years is available from the End of Life Care Profiles.
