After 7 month delay - the same (and worse) systemic problems and multiple flaws
None of this is difficult. It's not a resourcing issue either. The regulator warned them but is clearly toothless. Everything is broken. Deliberately.
Yup. Back in the 70s there would be general strikes and marches demanding resignations and trials.......
Depressingly predictable obfuscation from the ONS. Usual crap reporting from the Mail.
Great work everyone. Considering we’ve been waiting for this data for many months now, you would have thought that they could have supplied better more reliable information. It’s clear they’ve spent the time trying to obfuscate; undercounting the denominator, trying to support the narrative; and now with all the independent analysis, the ONS does not look fit for purpose. This needs further reporting to the ombudsman.
What? Mainstream media didn't check any of the data before parroting the mantra?! Tell me it isn't so?!!
Yes, the ONS report is largely of no value. Just a couple more points:
- The data excludes 3% of the population who did not respond to the 2021 census . That’s around 1.7million people. It also excludes 4.7 million people who were included in the census but who could not be linked to an NHS number. So that’s 6.4 million people who were excluded over 11% of the population of England. If they didn’t have NHS numbers then they’re unlikely to have been vaccinated.
- The notes to the report state that “the back series is produced from April 2021 rather than January 2021 because of the requirement for individuals to be alive on Census Day, 21 March 2021”
Fake data, missing data, hidden data ... it's all so tiresome.
“Silence can only be equated with fraud where there is a legal or moral duty to speak or where an inquiry left unanswered would be intentionally misleading.”

Adding the Unvaccinated and Ever vaccinated for 2021 April/Dec and comparing to ONS published database for All Cause deaths 2020-21 forr the same April to Dec period, there appears to be more than 64,000 deaths missing from the latest report. If correct another fudge of the data! Maybe someone can validate.
I am just so exasperated reading this. I don't know how you guys doing the analysis remain so professional and calm. Clearly the civil servants have done the job they are paid to do - screw up the data, frustrate the critics and plant a 'vaccines are wonderful' story in the Daily Mail.
I don't want to write Thank You every time, but thank you for transforming official opacity into reader clarity.
Age 64 I suddenly find statistics a compelling subject, who'd a thawt it!! Seriously well done people. you have shaken me from my middle class stupor over the last few months.
I wonder two things:
(1) are other types of ONS statistics equally flawed?
(2) are these flaws intentional or is it a difficult task with insufficient resources to get it right?
I was thinking about how the proportions of unvaccinated goes up after about march of 2022 in the ONS data. I sort of naively expected this to be non-increasing. Then I began to wonder if this increase may be somehow capturing disproportionate mortality in the vaccinated?
Also, the tables that seem to have counts for the vertical access, are they counts or ratios? Seems to me ratios would more clearly communicate the reality, as counts can be misleading.
None of the charts in this article are ours. This largely a roundup of other people's work.
Professor Fenton: To clarify is Ben from US Mortality saying that when you group together all vaccinated categories, they are dying at higher rates than the unvaccinated? If so that seems pretty darn compelling.
From the time it takes, to the deliberate fuzzing of data and changing the calculation methods, it is obvious to any layperson that this whole exercise constitutes one big coverup and burial. For it is a very simple exercise to produce accurate figures. Mind you, just from the start the intent was obvious. 28 days after a jab to be counted in as one of the saved… it tells you everything you needed to know.
