About irelandS excess deaths
What is this all about?
The Irelands Excess Deaths website serves as a platform that reconciles and analyses data from RIP.ie and the Annual report of An tArd-Chláraitheoir to the Minister for Social Protection on the operation of the Civil Registration Acts from 2015. By harmonising the information from these sources, the website aims to bridge the gap between official death statistics and the public’s perception of mortality. It offers a transparent and accurate portrayal of excess deaths by comparing the actual number of deaths recorded on RIP.ie with the expected number based on historical data. This rationale ensures a more comprehensive and insightful analysis of mortality trends, enabling individuals to gain a deeper understanding of this public health crisis.
