CSO statistical publication, , 11am

Important Notice: Due to the HSE cyber-attack in May 2021, General Register Offices (GRO) were closed. This meant that the registration of Births/Deaths/Marriages were not possible at that time. As a result, the total Births/Deaths/Marriages registered in Q2, Q3 and Q4 2021 is not comparable with previous and/or subsequent quarters, and therefore, care should be taken when comparing 2022 figures with 2021. See Statistician's Comment below for more.
