Number of daily deathsFrance, regions and departments
During the COVID-19 pandemic, INSEE is reporting the number of deaths per day per department on a weekly basis. Deaths are recorded in the commune in which they occur (and not in the place of residence of the deceased). The statistics released are provisional (please see the methodological note).
Last file update: 31 July
Last graphs, maps and comments update: 29 May
For each department, the following information is available in graphs, charts and comments:
- the cumulative number of daily deaths from 1 March to 18 May in 2018, 2019 and 2020; the corresponding downloadable files have been updated until 20 July;
- the number of daily deaths reported by the communes that opted for electronic reporting on 1 April 2020 (communes that have been reporting data electronically and not on paper, since at least that date, making it possible to use the data more rapidly) up to 22 May; the corresponding downloadable files have been updated until 24 July;
- the cumulative number of deaths from 1 March to 18 May in 2018, 2019 and 2020 broken down by sex, age and place of death. However, specific precautions must be taken when analysing the data on place of death given the proportion of death reports for which this information is not given, which may be higher in certain departments and vary from one year to the next. The corresponding downloadable files have been updated until 20 July.
An individual file is also provided for each death that occurred between 1 January 2018 and 20 July 2020, together with the date of death, sex, date of birth and commune in which the deceased lived, department and commune in which death occurred and place of death (hospital or clinic, home, retirement home, etc.)
Moreover, a methodological note is provided, giving information about the origin of data.
