Death rate (deaths/1,000 population)

See how world countries compare to each other in terms of Death rate. Follow the color coded map to visually see how Death rate is distributed between world countries. The darker the color, the higher the value. You can filter which regions to display in the table. When filters are used the two ranks are displayed: the one within the current filter set and the global rank.

This entry gives the average annual number of deaths during a year per 1,000 population at midyear; also known as crude death rate. The death rate, while only a rough indicator of the mortality situation in a country, accurately indicates the current mortality impact on population growth. This indicator is significantly affected by age distribution, and most countries will eventually show a rise in the overall death rate, in spite of continued decline in mortality at all ages, as declining fertility results in an aging population.
