These are raw undadjusted numbers as reported by the German Federal Statistical Office (Destatis.de). Excess is calculated by substracting deaths from the baseline. The baseline is calculated as the pre-pandemic average of 2015-2019 adjusted for the linear trend (10y linear regression). Striked out series can be toggled by clicking on the legend. We use a projection algorithm to account for the delay in reporting based on up to 8 weeks of previous reports. The figures, are not suitable forcomparison between states, as they do not normalize for differences in population size and age structure.
