Excess Winter Mortality

Due to increased demand for data relating to excess winter mortality, in 2011 NISRA published a report which outlines the scale of excess winter mortality in Northern Ireland. The report also looked at some of the factors behind excess winter mortality, along with some issues which should be considered when interpreting data. This data includes information by age group, cause of death and geographical area. Since 2011, NISRA has published updated summary tables of this data on an annual basis. Tables for 2011/12 and 2012/13 are available below.

The number of excess winter deaths are defined as the difference between the number of deaths which occurred in the winter months of December to March and the average number of deaths which occurred in the preceding August to November and the following April to July.
