There were 13,527 births in quarter 2 2020, 862 births or 6.0% less than the same period in 2019. This corresponds to a birth rate of 10.9 per 1,000 population, a decrease of 0.8 per thousand population from quarter 2 2019.

There were 8,582 deaths in quarter 2 2020, an increase of 14.1% (or 1,063 deaths) from quarter 2 2019. This equates to a death rate of 6.9 per 1,000 population, an increase of 0.8 points from quarter 2 2019.

There were 36 infant deaths registered in quarter 2 2020 giving an infant mortality rate of 2.7 per 1,000 live births.

The number of births less the number of deaths in quarter 2 2020 resulted in a natural increase of population of 4,945 persons.

Births

There were 6,991 male births and 6,536 female births in quarter 2 2020. The 13,527 births represent an annual birth rate of 10.9 per thousand population. A decrease of 0.8 in the rate recorded in quarter 2 2019. See tables 4 and 5.

Cause of death

Diseases of the circulatory system:

Diseases of the circulatory system accounted for 2,245 deaths, or an annual rate of 1.8 per 1,000 population.  Of these, 1,104 were due to ischaemic heart disease and 388 to cerebrovascular disease. See tables 2a, 2b, 13, 14 and figure 4.

Malignant neoplasms (Cancer):

There were 2,286 deaths from malignant neoplasms. This is equivalent to an annual rate of 1.8 per 1,000 population.

Diseases of the respiratory system:

Deaths from chronic lower respiratory disease numbered 365, pneumonia accounted for 207 deaths and 225 deaths resulted from all other respiratory diseases. 

Accidents, suicides and other:

There were 183 deaths due to accidents, suicides and other external causes. Accidents accounted for 82.5% (151) of these deaths while suicides accounted for 13.7% (25). Of these external cause deaths, 63.9.% (117) were male.

The number of deaths registered in Quarter 2 2020 that were assigned an Underlying Cause of Death of intentional self-harm was 25, this is less than a quarter (24.0%) of the number assigned the same Underlying Cause of Death code of intentional self-harm in the same quarter of 2019. All unnatural deaths, which includes deaths from intentional self-harm must be referred to the Coroner's Office. However, the Coroner's Court did not hold public hearings as a consequence of the restrictions imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and this would impact on the number of deaths registered and subsequently assigned an Underlying Cause of Death of intentional self-harm.  

Dementia and Alzheimer's:

In Quarter 2 2020 there were 441 deaths due to dementia of which 270 (or 61.2%) were female. There were 118 deaths due to Alzheimer's of which 82 (or 69.5%) were female. See tables 18 and 19.

COVID-19

Quarter 2 2020 is the first quarter in which deaths due to COVID-19 were registered. There were 1,227 deaths due to COVID-19 recorded in quarter 2 2020, 619 of which were male and 608 which were female. Of these, 1,004 or 81.8% were aged 75 and over.  

There were 1,184 of these COVID-19 deaths where the virus was identified while there were 43 deaths where the virus was not identified. See WHO ICD-10 classification of COVID-19 link 

Deaths due to COVID-19 were highest in Dublin City with 362 such deaths followed by South Dublin (148) and Kildare (99). In Ulster, Monaghan was the county with the highest number of COVID-19 deaths (51); in Connacht, Mayo had the highest number of deaths due to COVID-19 (35) while Cork County (29) had the highest number of such deaths in Munster.

The mean average age of death was 82.9 years while the median age was 84.4 years for all deaths due to COVID-19 in quarter 2 2020.

Age at death

The leading cause of death in quarter 2 2020 varied widely by age-group. For those aged from 15 to 34 years, external causes of death including accidents, suicide and other ranked first (18 deaths). Among individuals aged 35-74, malignant neoplasms (cancer) was the leading cause (1,158), while for those aged 75 and older, it was diseases of the circulatory system (1,617 deaths). See table 14.

There were 7,295 deaths of persons aged 65 and over registered in quarter 2 2020. This represents an annual death rate of 40.5 per 1,000 population aged 65 and over and represents an increase of 5.3 when compared with the corresponding quarter of 2019. See tables 3, 4 and figure 5.

The average (mean) time-lag between the date of death and the registration of death was 46 days while the median (mid-point in data) was 25 days for quarter 2 2020.

Natural Increase

The natural increase in the population (births minus deaths) for quarter 2 2020 was 4,945. This represents a rate of 4.0 per 1,000 population, 1.6 less than quarter 2 2019. See tables 3, 4 and figure 1.

Marriages

The number of marriages registered during the quarter was 304 of which 5 were same-sex marriages. This is equivalent to an annual marriage rate of 0.2 per 1,000 population, a decrease of 4.0 from quarter 2 2019. See tables 3 and 4.

Background Notes

Introduction

This report has been prepared by the Central Statistics Office for the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection in accordance with the provisions of Section 2 of the Vital Statistics and Births, Deaths and Marriages Registration Act, 1952 and Government Order SI 831 of 2007.

Methodology

All figures in this report are classified by quarter of registration and are provisional.

The Underlying Cause of Death is classified according to the World Health Organisation's International Classification of Diseases, Version 10 (ICD-10), see link below:

All deaths registered in the quarter have been included in the statistics and some cases have been assigned a provisional cause of death pending the outcome of further enquiries. 

Caution should be exercised if directly comparing these mortality statistics with those of previous quarters as this data is provisional and subject to change. Final data is published in our annual reports and is based on the date the death occurred while the quarterly releases are based on the date the death was registered.

Stated Parity 

Refers to the number of previous live births excluding any not stated.

Births classified by area of residence of mother.

From January 2018 onwards where births take place within the State and the area of residence of the mother is outside the State, the area of residence of the mother is recorded as outside the State. Prior to this, births where the mother was residing outside the State were assigned to the location where the birth took place within the State.

NUTS2 and NUTS3 Regional Authority areas - January 2018

From the 1st January 2018 an Amendment of the EU NUTS legislation came into effect. This reflects the new regional assembly structure and the other changes to the Local Government Act for Tipperary North, Tipperary South and Limerick and Waterford City and County Councils. The composition of the new Regions breakdown is outlined below.

Up to December 2017 regional classifications were based on the NUTS (Nomenclature of Territorial Units) classification used by Eurostat. The NUTS3 regions corresponded to eight Regional Authorities established under the Local Government Act, 1991 (Regional Authorities) (Establishment) Order, 1993, which came into operation on 1 January 1994. The NUTS2 regions, which were proposed by Government and agreed by Eurostat in 1999, are groupings of the NUTS3 regions. The composition of the regions is set out below.

EU 15-27

Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia.

Croatia is included in EU 15 to EU27 from quarter 3 2013.

The United Kingdom left the EU on the 31 January 2020. From the 1 February 2020 the EU is reduced to 27 Member States.

As the United Kingdom was part of the EU for one month in 2020 - it is included as part of the EU 28 for Quarter 1 2020. 

Civil Partnerships

Civil Partnership legislation was introduced in Ireland on the 1st January, 2011. From 16th November 2015, when same-sex marriages legislation came into effect, same-sex couples no longer had the option to apply for a Civil Partnership.  However, couples that had given the required 3 months' notice of a Civil Partnership prior to 16th November 2015 were still entitled to have a Civil Partnership ceremony after that date.  

Same-Sex Marriage Legislation

The Marriage Act 2015 (No. 35/2015) effective from the 16th November 2015 (S.I. 504/2015) refers, allows parties of the same sex to marry.

Usual Residence Population concept

Rates for quarter 2 2020, were calculated using the relevant population data in April 2020.

For the purpose of this release the population concept of usual residence has been used, i.e. all persons usually resident and present in the State on census night, plus absent persons who are usually resident in Ireland, but are temporarily away from home and outside the State on Census night.  All persons are classified according to the region of their usual residence.

Revision of rates

Rates for Births, Deaths and Marriages were revised in quarter 4 2017 for intercensal years 2012 to 2015, based on revised estimated usual residence population data. Rates for 2016 were also revised based on updated Census of Population usual residence population figures.  

From the 1st January 2018 the CSO is using new automated software called IRIS for selecting the underlying cause of death code. The coding system has been developed and is maintained by the IRIS core group to code mortality data and is the preferred coding tool for European countries. See IRIS home page:
