My Department, as required by the Coroners Act 1962, publishes annual statistics in respect of the primary work of coroners in the various jurisdictions throughout the country. 

These statistics concern the number of deaths reported, the number of post-mortem examinations directed and the number of inquests heard by each coroner. This information is publicly available on the corners website at www.coroners.ie.

Statistics on the types of death requested by the Deputy are not held by my Department.
