These tables detail the number of suicides registered each year in Northern Ireland and provide additional information on age, sex, geographical area and time taken to register the death.  They have been produced as an addendum to the Annual Report of the Registrar General.

NISRA is currently working with the Coroners Service in relation to a quality issue identified in the Northern Ireland Suicide deaths data series. This affects the period 2015 to 2018. The guidance note below provides additional information on this issue as well as advice on which data to use until further notice.   NISRA will keep users informed once a course of action has been agreed, including an indicative timeline for this to be implemented.
