In 2014, 18,886 people died in Slovenia or 2.3% less than in 2013

In 2014, 18,886 people died in Slovenia or 448 (2.3%) less than in 2013. The crude death rate (number of deaths per 1,000 population) was 9.2.

In 2014 in Slovenia more women died than men (9,208 men and 9,678 women). Between 1954 and 2008 the number of deaths of men was higher than the number of deaths of women.  Since 2009 more female deaths than male deaths were recorded due to the population structure in older ages where women predominate.
