Death rates

Death rate

The number of deaths in the population divided by the average population (or the population at midyear) is the crude death rate. In 1994, for example, the crude death rate per 1,000 population was 8.8 in the united states, 7.1 in australia, etc. A death rate can also be tabulated according to age or cause.
