Weekly death registrations in Northern Ireland

Since the Covid-19 pandemic began in Northern Ireland in March 2020, NISRA have produced detailed statistical tables on deaths being registered each week.



Weekly Deaths Data

The tables 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, only a total number of deaths registered was published weekly.

Production of a full bulletin on a weekly basis ceased after 27 May 2022. Furthermore, statistical press notices on weekly deaths ceased after 26 August 2022. Weekly death tables, dashboard and summary statistics will continue to be available on the NISRA website as normal. A bulletin may be produced where necessary in future, depending on trends in deaths, and Covid-related deaths specifically.

Latest Weekly Deaths

Please note: Production of the weekly deaths dashboard has ceased with the last release showing up to week ending 23 June 2023. Further data can be accessed in the weekly tables.
