How many deaths have been registered since the year 1980 where Aids was the sole cause of death?


Deaths have been digitally registered since 1 January 2018 and detailed statistics can be extracted from that date only.

The data prior to 1 January 2018 is held in separate volumes of parish paper registers. To extract the data would require the manual search of every page of all 12 Parish Registers for each year requested. Each year there are 800 to 900 death registrations made across all 12 parishes. It is estimated that this would take more than 12.5 hours to complete Therefore Article 16 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has been applied.

Between 1 January 2018 and the date of this request there are no deaths registered where HIV or AIDS were the sole cause of death.

Article applied

Article 16 - A scheduled public authority may refuse to supply information if cost excessive.

A scheduled public authority may refuse to supply information if cost excessive (1) A scheduled public authority that has been requested to supply information may refuse to supply the information if it estimates that the cost of doing so would exceed an amount determined in the manner prescribed by Regulations.

Regulation 2 (1) of the Freedom of Information (Costs) (Jersey) Regulations 2014 allows an authority to refuse a request for information where the estimated cost of dealing with the request would exceed the specified amount of the cost limit of £500. This is the estimated cost of one person spending 12.5 working hours in determining whether the department holds the information, locating, retrieving and extracting the information.
