The request was partially successful.

Dear Executive Office (Northern Ireland),

As you might reasonably be expected to be aware of the statistical evidence which shows that the number of deaths "from all causes" in 2020 in England and Wales were fewer than the number of deaths "from all causes" in 1990, I would like to make a Freedom of Information Act request for the following in relation to the Northern Ireland region specifically:

1. In the years from and including 1990-2020, which year saw the highest recorded deaths in Northern Ireland from ALL causes?

2. What was the total number of deaths from ALL causes in NI for 2020?

Thanking you in advance for your time in this matter,

Yours faithfully,

R Doherty

TEO FOI, Executive Office (Northern Ireland)

Mr Doherty

Thank you for your enquiry below.

To expedite a speedier resolution to your query I am responding to you under normal course of business.

The Executive Office (TEO) does not hold this information.

Please note that the Executive Office is only one of a number of separate and legally distinct public authorities within the Northern Ireland Executive.

The Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA) is an agency of the Department of Finance (DoF) and the principal source of official statistics and social research on Northern Ireland. Therefore, it is likely to hold the information you seek.

By way of advice and assistance please see link below to the NISRA website and also links to their statistics pages which you may find useful.

However, DoF may be contacted at [email address], should you wish to pursue your enquires further.

I hope this response has been of assistance.
