Or did you want the source for the numbers? If so: World Mortality Dataset

We have weekly or monthly data for all of those at least through the end of 2020, and most of them more current than that. To see the raw data (including earlier years for comparison), go to https://github.com/akarlinsky/world_mortality

They get their data from the World Mortality Dataset (https://github.com/akarlinsky/world_mortality). They claim their modeled baselines fit a linear trend for year, to account for long-term increases or decreases in mortality, and a fixed effect for each week or month up to February 2020.
I haven't dug into the details of the methodology but it appears very sensible. Of course it's very dependent on overall mortality rates having been accurately reported to begin with.
If the Economist keeps this this chart going long enough, we should expect that in countries worst affected by covid, future mortality rates will fall below the expected baseline. The simple (if somewhat morbid) logic being that in those places the most vulnerable people will have already died.

India doesn't feature in the table in their article. It is not represented in their sources, the World Mortality Database, or the Human Mortality Database. Yet they somehow estimated that India had 2.3 million excess deaths. Based on what, exactly?

There is no pandemic. According to their own numbers, the virus has killed 0.2% of the population.

All countries that produce death statistics that include monthly or weekly are compiled here: https://github.com/akarlinsky/world_mortality
This CDC report defines the unvaccinated as "unvaccinated <14 days receipt of first dose." So, if you die from the jab within 14 days of getting it, you're identified as unvaccinated in the statistics. How could this be considered anything but fraud?

The real numbers (actual number of deaths), as supplied by each country, are compiled at https://github.com/akarlinsky/world_mortality. If you read that page, it says where the data come from. This data only includes countries that provide timely, accurate data at the level of months or weeks.3 projects | reddit.com/r/conspiracy | 25 Aug 2021
This does not account for population growth rates. As you can see from https://www.macrotrends.net/countries/WLD/world/death-rate, the death rate has maintained the same trajectory at about .03% increase per year. Granted this site has a giant disclaimer that these are projections, but many other sites such as https://github.com/akarlinsky/world_mortality share these same info discrepancies. The general takeaway is "these are the numbers so far, but they may be different" lol.

As I said, they DO list mortality.org as well as https://github.com/akarlinsky/world_mortality as their data sources.
