Prepared internally, no external costs.
Please provide the number of deaths and genders for 2022 and for the period 1 January 2023 to 30 June 2023, where the cause of death is due to cardiac failure.
Cardiac failure is synonymous with heart failure.
Table 1 represents the ICD10 codes used to identify the following conditions in underlying cause of death. These codes are based on ONS definitions for reporting on deaths due to heart failure.
|Heart failure||I50.0 – I50.1|
|Heart failure, unspecified||I50.9|
Deaths due to heart failure in 2022 can be seen in Table 2.
Heart failure where ICD-10 code I50 and I50.9 is the underlying cause of death (2022)
*Numbers rounded to the nearest five
Data is not available for 2023 due to the delays which can sometimes occur with registration of deaths and the time it takes for death cause to be coded by the Office for National Statistics (UK). It is standard for mortality to be reported in arrears. As this information is not held by the Government of Jersey, Article 3 of the Freedom of information (Jersey) Law 2011 applies.
Where numbers are small, disclosure control has been applied to protect the privacy of individuals and numbers fewer than five are represented as ‘<5’. Article 25 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 has been applied.
Article 3 - Meaning of “information held by a public authority”
For the purposes of this Law, information is held by a public authority if –
(a) it is held by the authority, otherwise than on behalf of another person; or
(b) it is held by another person on behalf of the authority.
Article 25 - Personal information
(1) Information is absolutely exempt information if it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2005.
(2) Information is absolutely exempt information if –
(a) it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is not the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2005; and
(b) its supply to a member of the public would contravene any of the data protection principles, as defined in that Law.
3) In determining for the purposes of this Article whether the lawfulness principle in Article 8(1)(a) of the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018 would be contravened by the disclosure of information, paragraph 5(1) of Schedule 2 to that Law (legitimate interests) is to be read as if sub-paragraph (b) (which disapplies the provision where the controller is a public authority) were omitted.
