Coronavirus (COVID-19): deaths at a local level in Scotland

Reading Time: < 1 minute

This post looks at data from the National Records of Scotland which breaks down deaths from coronavirus (COVID-19) at a local level. The data refers to where a person lived.

How to use the map

You can zoom in and out of the map using the plus and minus signs in the top right hand corner. When you hover over an area it will bring up the number of deaths involving COVID-19 in that area and the name of the area.

Due to the size of intermediate zones it may be difficult to use the map on portable devices.

Numbers of deaths per 100,000 people involving COVID-19, by Intermediate Zone, between 1 March 2020 and 31th August 2021

Please be aware that some areas are named "IZ" followed by a number. The Scottish Government have highlighted that in order to name areas, a high level of local knowledge is required which is not available centrally. On top of this there are sensitivities around naming that can cause difficulties in some areas.

From 17 February 2021, we have included the number and proportion of smaller areas (datazones) within the larger area (neighbourhood) which are in the 20% most deprived areas in Scotland.  Therefore, this shows us, relatively, which neighbourhoods have higher and lower concentrations of deprived areas within them.
