I am trying to learn whether anyone tracks the number of deaths due to freezing during the winter, ideally due to lack of ability to heat one's living space. Does anyone have any tips for me?

Diseases of the heart and circulation - cardiovascular and cerebrovascular - such as heart attacks and stroke, kill more people than any others, accounting for over 15 million deaths, or about 30% of the global total, every year. Many more millions of people are disabled by them. Regarded largely as lifestyle diseases because smoking, obesity, unhealthy diet and heavy alcohol consumption increase the risk of developing them, circulatory diseases were once thought of as affecting exclusively industrialized nations.
Now, as developing countries modernize, they are gradually controlling communicable diseases, and the life expectancy of their populations is increasing. Unfortunately, the risks of circulatory diseases are also increasing, partly because of the adoption of lifestyles similar to those common in industrialized countries.These diseases are emerging rapidly as a major public health concern in most developing countries, where they now account for about 25% of all deaths - 10 out of 40 million. In developed countries, almost half of all deaths - more than 5 out of 12 million - are attributable to them.
