Australia Reports 17.1% More Deaths Than the Historical Average Following the COVID-19 Wave, Let’s Look at the Data

After this video I’ve decided to look closely at the underlying data, which was put online a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to know how big an impact could be seen in younger people, knowing that COVID-19 mostly kills old people. At first I found this page:

Australia data

I then checked about a dozen pages there, but no actual data is being provided (like a download link). Disappointing.

But aihw.gov.au seems like the wrong place to check. abs.gov.au is where the detailed data is. They released some new data along with a summary as follows:

Sadly, they use proprietary Microsoft formats (foreign company that bribes and attacks standards), so I’ve converted all the files to ODF.

I’ve fused together past (historical) data with the first 6 months of this year and here’s what I found:

Aussie data sliced

Younger groups’ deaths data. Those are totals.

Younger groups' deaths data

The data sliced some more.

Demonstrating high number of deaths

So it seems skewed towards more excess deaths among people over 45, but among the younger groups deaths have increased as well.
