Paul Craine MLC has shared this data from the Economic Affairs Division (EAD) of the Isle of Man Government. This data indicates that there was a total of 675 births recorded by EAD in 2021, and a total of 899 deaths recorded in 2021. The number of births and deaths combined for a natural population decrease of 224 people in the Isle of Man.

Manx Radio presented part of this data in a very confused manner earlier this month in a story that was subsequently secretly changed without any clear notice.
