Stroke related deaths (FOI)

Stroke related deaths (FOI)

Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 04 June 2019.

What are the Mortality rates from Stroke in the Island expressed as ‘Morality rate per 100,000’ each year from 1990 to the present day.


The international classification of diseases, version 10 (ICD-10) is used to assign an underlying cause of death from the information provided on death certificates.

Statistics Jersey hold data on underlying cause of death, coded by ICD-10 classification, for all deaths from 2008 to 2017.

The mortality data for 2018 is due to be published within the 2018 Jersey Mortality Statistics report in September 2019.

In the most recently available Jersey Mortality Statistics (2017), deaths due to stroke are included within the broader group of deaths due to circulatory diseases, see:

Jersey Mortality Statistics 2017

Deaths where the underlying cause was the narrower category of “stroke” are usually coded to:

I64 - (Stroke, not specified as haemorrhage or infarction)

Also included are the codes for:

I60 - Non-traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage

I61 - Non-traumatic intracerebral hemorrhage

I62 - Other and unspecified non-traumatic intracranial hemorrhage

I63 - Cerebral infarction

I65 - Occlusion and stenosis of precerebral arteries, not resulting in cerebral infarction

I66 - Occlusion and stenosis of cerebral arteries, not resulting in cerebral infarction

I67 - Other cerebrovascular diseases

I68 - Cerebrovascular disorders in diseases classified elsewhere

I69 - Sequelae of cerebrovascular disease

G45.9 - Transient cerebral ischemic attack, unspecified

The tables below provide the number of deaths where the underlying cause was stroke (ICD-10 codes I60-I69 and G45.9). They also give the rate of deaths per 100,000 population, for each single year from 2008 to 2017 and also the three-year averages over the same time period.

Counts have been rounded to the nearest five and suppressed where less than five, to avoid statistical disclosure of individuals.
