Key Points

  1. The statistics show a provisional total of 4,294 deaths registered in Quarter 3 of 2021.  Of this total, 417 (9.7%) deaths had Covid-19 as the underlying cause., This compares with 1,173 (27.3%) deaths due to cancer, 336 (7.8%) deaths due to Ischaemic heart disease, and 384 (8.9%) due to respiratory diseases (excluding Covid-19 deaths) in the same period.
  2. There were 37 deaths due to suicide (including events of undetermined intent) registered in Quarter 3, the majority of which (35) were deaths due to intentional self-harm. This is half the number of deaths due to intentional self-harm registered in Quarter 2 2021 (72).
  3. A total of 4,295 marriages were registered in Quarter 3 2021, and 12 civil partnerships.
  4. The number of births in this Quarter was 5,687, which is comparable to the same period in previous years, although less than Quarter 3 2020 (7,368). The inflated number of births registered in Quarter 3 2020 was due to reduced processing of birth registrations in Quarter 2 2020 as a result of the pandemic. There was a total of 33 stillbirths registered in Quarter 3 2021.
