CENTRAL STATISTICS OFFICE
Skehard Road, Cork
Every death occurring in Ireland must be registered with the General Register Office. The details of these death registrations are compiled into statistical reports by the Central Statistics Office, acting on behalf of the Department of Health and Children. For some deaths there is a large delay between the death occurring, and the death being registered. Deaths that are not registered in the calendar year they occurred, or in the following calendar year, are classified as Late Deaths, and the statistics on these deaths are presented separately.
