Births, Deaths and Marriages

Statistics on vital events (including births, deaths and marriages).

The Vital Statistics Team provide statistics on vital events registered by the General Register Office (GRO) for Northern Ireland; these include birth, marriage, divorce and death registrations. These statistics are important in providing information to support the delivery of public services and are used by the European Union and United Nations for international comparisons.

Finalised Annual Statistics on all these registrations and more are available from the Registrar General Annual Report.

Further provisional statistics for more recent years are available from the Registrar General Quarterly Tables.
