Dear Lord Farmer,

As National Statistician and Chief Executive of the UK Statistics Authority, I am responding to your Parliamentary Question of 3 May 2024, asking whether His Majesty’s Government have any more recent statistics on suicide other than the Office of National Statistics data for 2022, published on 19 December 2023. (HL4326)

In addition to our annual suicide statistics, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) also publish provisional quarterly suicide statistics for England. The latest statistics provide provisional suicide registrations for 2023. These statistics are derived from the information provided when deaths are certified and registered. Finalised 2023 suicide registrations for England and Wales will be published later in 2024. This will be forwarded to you once released.

The Office for Health Improvement and Disparities also publish near to real-time suspected suicide surveillance (nRTSSS) data for England. This data has been collected from Police Forces in England and provides an early indication of changes in suicide trends. The latest data was published on 25th April 2024 and covers November 2022 to January 2024.

Yours sincerely,

Professor Sir Ian Diamond
