This page contains weekly deaths tables from 2024.
Please note: The tables on this page are cumulative and cover all weeks for 2024.
Friday 23 February: For the first time this week’s table 1, in the weekly death registrations tables, includes estimates based on the new UK-wide methodology to report on excess deaths. The new method is as advised by ONS in their blog post and methodology paper, and as pre-announced by NISRA in the October 2023 Vital Statistics newsletter and summarised in the information paper published on 20 February.
We will continue to include both 5-year averages (including and excluding 2020) as the previous estimate of expected deaths, in addition to the new baseline for calculating excess deaths, for the next 8 weeks for comparison and transparency purposes.
