Brunswick County

In Brunswick County, 980 deaths occurred in 2014. Of these, 883 were county residents. This means 97 deaths that occurred in Brunswick County were people who resided in other counties. A total of 1,290 Brunswick County residents died in 2014 (regardless of location), which means 407 died somewhere other than Brunswick County.

New Hanover County

In 2014, 2,570 deaths occurred in New Hanover County. Of these, 1,694 were New Hanover residents. This means 876 deaths that occurred in New Hanover County were people who resided in other counties. A total of 1,828 New Hanover County residents died in 2014 (regardless of location), which means 134 died somewhere other than New Hanover County.

Pender County

In Pender County, 268 deaths occurred in 2014. Of these, 223 were county residents. This means 45 deaths that occurred in Pender County were people who resided in other counties. A total of 510 Brunswick County residents died in 2014 (regardless of location), which means 287 died somewhere other than Pender County. So that year more Pender County residents died out of the county than in the county, which could mean many were at a medical facility outside of the county when they died.

The state keeps a record of vital statistics on its website. You can search by year, region or county. Data for 2015 should be available in the fall.

The Occurrence Deaths listed are the number of deaths that occurred in the chosen county. This is both residents of the county and non-residents. The other counts of death in the tables are all county residents, regardless of where the death occurred.
