Number of deaths by occupation, sex, age, cause of death, and COVID involvement

Office for National Statistics Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear Office for National Statistics,

I know that death certificates contain information about occupation, as well as sex, and age. I also know that it is possible to state whether a death 'involved COVID'.

I would like access to a granular dataset that describes both (a) deaths involving COVID; and (b) all deaths. I would like this data to be available on a day-by-day basis. Crucially, I would like this dataset to be split by each of the demographic factors listed above. I would like this data going back as far as possible, but from at least the start of 2020.

So, for 1st January 2020, one row of this dataset would look like the following:

Occupation | Sex | Age | Deaths involving COVID | All deaths
Teacher | F | 20 | 0 | 99

Another row of the dataset might look like:

Occupation | Sex | Age | Deaths involving COVID | All deaths
Researcher | F | 20 | 0 | 54

Yours faithfully,

David Zendle,
