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.

Users are asked to note that the weekly deaths statistics for week ending 9th April will comprise tables and SPN only; the report will be reinstated next Friday 23rd April.

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.
