The great killers of earlier times, such as gastroenteritis and pneumonia among young children, and tuberculosis at all ages, now comprise only a very small proportion of all fatalities. In recent years, the trend has been for a declining frequency of deaths of persons aged less than 40 years.

In 2002, the deaths of 3,979 resident Tasmanians were recorded. Male deaths accounted for 2,034 of the total while female deaths numbered 1,945, a ratio of 104.6 male deaths to every 100 female deaths.
