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 (in French)). The CSV file containing the (non-personal) data regarding each death is also updated weekly.

Pour comprendre

For each department, the following information is available in graphs, charts and comments:

  • the cumulative number of daily deaths from 1 March to 20 April in 2018, 2019 and 2020;
  • 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 24 April;
  • the cumulative number of deaths from 1 March to 20 April 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.

An individual file is also provided for each death that occurred between 1 January 2018 and 11 May 2020, together with the date of death, sex, date of birth and department in which the deceased lived, department and commune in which death occurred and place of death (hospital or clinic, home, care home, etc.)
