Weekly death registrations in Northern Ireland

Since the Covid-19 pandemic began in Northern Ireland in March 2020, NISRA have produced a weekly bulletin alongside detailed statistical tables.


Weekly Deaths Bulletin

The bulletins contain summary information and sub-national analysis on the number of deaths registered each week in Northern Ireland, and, specifically, the number of COVID-19 deaths registered each week.

Prior to 2020, there was no bulletin produced, but a weekly death total by age band is available from 2011.

Going forward, NISRA will only be releasing a statistical bulletin for Covid-19 related deaths when the number of Covid-19 related deaths registered in one week is five or more. The full set of tables and Statistical Press Release will continue to be produced and published however. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
