Dear National Records of Scotland,

The NRS website states that "Of the total number of deaths registered in week 13 (29 March to 4 April), there were 38 where COVID-19 was mentioned on the death certificate. This is a decrease of 24 deaths on the previous week. Note that the figures will have been affected by the public holiday on Friday the 2nd of April, as most registration offices were closed. This means that the total number of registrations for week 13 is likely to be an undercount.”.

The NRS website goes on to state "Of deaths involving COVID-19 in the latest week: 47% (18 deaths) were aged 75+, and 21% (8 deaths) were aged under 65.".

What are the mean, median and mode ages of death involving COVID-19 that have been recorded for Week 13: 29 March to 4 April 2021 (n = 38)?

Yours faithfully,

J Grove
