Description:
Inquested deaths in Ireland: A study of routine data and recording procedures Page 3 INTRODUCTION Ireland’s Central Statistics Office (CSO) and national statistics offices in other European countries classify the cause of every death according to the World Health Organization’s International Classification of Diseases, Injuries and Causes of Death (ICD). Deaths not due to illness or disease are due to an external cause and generally comprise accidental falls, drownings and poisonings, suicides, road traffic accidents and homicides. The providers of the information used by national statistics offices to classify external causes of death varies across Europe. In Ireland in the 1960s, coroners were the primary providers of such information to the CSO. At this time, suicide was considered a crime in Ireland and religious sanctions against suicide were in place. Ireland had one of the lowest official suicide rates in Europe, though significant underreporting of suicide was suspected.
