    Google trends on death related search terms

As a preface, this was not a scientific study or anything more than my own curiosity. I googled “what to do when someone dies” as I suspect most laymen will, then selected the most official looking website I could with the answer. In this case the AARP had a good write up from which I took several search terms and checked against google trends. Some terms yielded only slight increases year over year, but all showed a steady uptick. Whether this is related to population growth over the 5 years I sampled or other factors related to health, they all produced similar uptrends, with some notable standouts showing rapid increases from last year to this year.

The terms I searched were: funeral, coffin, urn, life insurance, death certificate, cremation, obituary, and executor.

“funeral” for the week covering oct 25: 2016- 36 2017- 40 2018- 44 2019- 56 2020- 56 2021- 75

Similarly, life insurance:

While this may be related closely to employer benefits and other ancilliary factors without context, the search term continues to rise over time with queries yty as follows: ’16- 73 ’17- 81 ’18- 69 ’19- 71 ’20- 84 ’21- 95.

Additionally, cremation showed a dramatic and sustained rise, and is a term only associated with postmortem activities.

This trend suggests the underlying activities related to death are increasing. Despite the virus itself reducing the number of elderly and thus reducing the number of people who would normally die, where the total all cause mortality should decline, the rate seems to actually be increasing. And for 2021, that rate seems to be increasing faster than even 2020.

I believe this is vaccine related, but I will continue to follow these terms and see what happens through the winter.

All cause deaths have gone up by about 15% in the UK. Either way – it would indicate the jabs are not ‘safe’ or ‘effective’ at reducing deaths.
