Thematic Map > Death rate - World

Loading map...

Definition: 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.

Description: The map displayed here shows how Death rate varies by country. The shade of the country corresponds to the magnitude of the indicator. The darker the shade, the higher the value.
