Development Relevance: Mortality rates due to unintentional poisoning remains relatively high in low income countries. This indicator implicates inadequate management of hazardous chemicals and pollution, and of the effectiveness of a country’s health system.

Limitations and Exceptions: Some countries do not have death registration data or sample registration systems. The estimates on this indicator need to be completed with other type of information for these countries.

Aggregation method: Weighted average

Periodicity: Annual
