Circulatory disease is the number one cause of death among residents, according to the ESO’s compendium of statistics.

Cancer, respiratory disease, external causes, and endocrine system diseases rounded out the top five killers, responsible for 144 of 170 deaths recorded in 2014, the latest data provided in the report.

The breakdown for men and women was strikingly different.

For men, cancer was the prevalent killer, and external causes, which include motor vehicle deaths, homicides, and accidental drownings took the number three spot. That’s because men made up the overwhelming majority of those killed by these so-called external causes.

For women, genitourinary disease cracked the list of killers, ranking in the number five-spot.
