Deaths

Two key sources about deaths from Covid-19 at LA level are ONS data and local registrar data. They are derived from the same source (civil registration data). ONS data is more comprehensive as it includes deaths of York residents which have occurred and been registered outside York. Local registrar data provides a breakdown by age and gender. For both data sources a death from Covid-19 is said to have occurred when Covid-19 has been recorded on the death certificate. The most recently available data is summarised below:

ONS Cumulative data: Since the start of the pandemic, for deaths occurring up to 19th November 2021 and registered up to 27th November 2021, 430 Covid-19 deaths were recorded as having occurred for CYC residents (253 in hospital, 140 in care homes, 29 at home/elsewhere and 8 in a hospice). The number of deaths per 100,000 of population (using ONS 2020 Mid-Year Population Estimates) in York is 203.78 which is lower than the national average of 254.25

Age / Gender breakdown (using registrar data): The average age of the CYC residents who died was 82, with an age range of 40-104. The age profile of the CYC residents who have died is older than the national average (77.8% were aged 75+ compared with 71.7% nationally). 48% of the CYC residents who died were male. The national average is 54.8%.
