Mortality and morbidity data for CLD presented throughout these sections are based on diagnostic classifications from the WHO International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9 and 10).

For morbidity and mortality analysis, chronic liver disease has been defined using the following ICD codes: ICD-9 571.0-571.6, ICD-10 K70, K73, K74. This approach is consistent with definitions used by the NRS, ONS and the latest version of the WHO for the Health for All Database.

Please note: If you require the most up-to-date data available, please check the data sources directly as new data may have been published since these data pages were last updated. Although we endeavour to ensure that the data pages are kept up-to-date, there may be a time lag between new data being published and the relevant ScotPHO web pages being updated.
