OECD Excess Mortality Stats

Quite a number of websites have reported on excess mortality but it is worthy to repeat.


The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) keeps track of weekly excess mortality. I do not know how these figures are calculated in detail, only that the expected number of deaths is based on the average of the actual number of deaths over the past five years for that particular week. The figures can be found at https://stats.oecd.org/index.aspx?queryid=104676.


A few countries are plotted below. One need not be a statistician to see that whilst there was excess mortality during some points of the so-called COVID-19 pandemic, it has obviously remained positive or risen since the rollout of the so-called vaccine. No doubt it’s just a coincidence.


And on another note, depending on the country, these stats are not easy to find and even harder is death by vaccination status if at all. This point alone is suss given that there is no good reason to not publish such a simple stat in a way that can be easily found.


Addendum (22 Feb 2024): This article was initially published on 1 April 2023 and, without intending to be an April Fool’s Day joke, some of the plots were wrong as I had selected the wrong data in the spreadsheet. In any case, the general idea is the same: there is excess mortality after vaccine rollout.


Those plots have all been removed, including the ones that were not wrong. The plots below are new, showing excess mortality (%) for all ages from 2020 week 1 to 2023 week 52. Please note the difference in (vertical) scale.
