From housing economist Tom Lawler: (CR Note: This is valuable demographic data)
Provisional data from the CDC indicate that there have been 3,427,882 US deaths reported for 2021 as of 2/9/2022, up from 3,383,729 deaths in 2020. Because of reporting delays in some parts of the country the 2021 final death numbers will be a little bit higher that the numbers in the 2/9 report.
CDC also reports provisional death counts by age groups, and below is a table showing 2021 deaths reported so far by age compared to final death counts by age for 2020 and 2019.
