A measure of the frequency of occurrence of death in a defined population during a specified interval of time.
the proportion of deaths to population.
number of deaths from illness or disease ...... back
The mortality rate is the rate at which people die from a disease, such as a specific type of cancer. It is usually expressed as the number of deaths from the disease per 100,000 deaths per year.
A percentage rate at which death occurs among a defined group of people of a specified age and sometimes of a specified gender. Insurers base the premiums for life insurance in part on the mortality rate for a proposed insured's age group. Contrast with morbidity rate.
The proportion of the population who die of a disease, often expressed as a number per 100,000.
Number of deaths per 100,000 persons per year.
The rate of deaths in a society within a given time
Ratio of the number of deaths from a particular disease to the total number of cases of the disease.
Mortality rate is a statistic that shows the total number of deaths (typically per thousand people) within a certain demographic group of people. If you are in a group with a high mortality rate, e.g., people who have been habitual smokers for more than thirty years, your life insurance premiums will likely be higher than people who have not been long-term habitual smokers.
The probability of death occurring within a specified time period multiplied by a constant. Mutually exclusive and exhaustive categories Each subject is classifiable into only one category.
the ratio of deaths in an area to the population of that area; expressed per 1000 per year
The frequency of death within a particular group.
The relative frequency of deaths in a population.
The number and frequency of deaths (usually expressed in thousands) among a certain group of people. The premium a person pays for life insurance is based in part on the mortality rate for that person's age group.
The number of new deaths of a given type of cancer per person in the general population(usually expressed as a rate per 100,000).
is the rate of people who die from a specific illness in relation to the total population. Mortality rates are usually expressed as the number of deaths per 1,000, 10,000 or 100,000 persons.
The rate at which people die as a result of a particular cause in a given population.
The number of deaths attributed to a disease during a specific period of time divided by the size of the population during that period of time. The result is often multiplied by a base number, such as 1,000 or 100,000.
The number of deaths in a population.
Mortality rate is the number of deaths for a given period divided by the population at risk per 100,000 population.
The number of deaths, usually expressed as deaths per thousand, in a group of people.
The number of deaths in a group of people, usually expressed as deaths per thousand.
The number of cancer deaths per 100,000 people, per year.
Deaths from a given disease over a period of time, usually a year.
The frequency with which death occurs among a defined group of people. The premium that a person pays for life insurance is based in part on the mortality rate for that person's age group.
The mortality rate for a cohort during a given time interval is the number of deaths occurring during the interval divided by the total exposure, or person-time at risk, during that interval. For example, consider a cohort of 5 individuals followed for one year. If one person died three months into the year (one-fourth of a person-year at risk of death), two people died six months into the year, and the remaining two people lived to the end of the year, then the total exposure for the year is 1/4 + 2(1/2) + 2(1) = 3.25 person-years. The total number of deaths is 3. The mortality rate is m = 3/3.25 = 0.923. The general formula for the mortality rate at age x in a life table is m(x) = d(x)/L(x).
The frequency of deaths in proportion to a specific population.
A death rate . There are a number of different types of mortality rates as, for examples, the following: The fetal mortality rate : The ratio of fetal deaths to the sum of the births (the live births + the fetal deaths) in that year. The infant mortality rate : The number of children dying under a year of age divided by the number of live births that year. The maternal mortality rate : The number of maternal deaths related to childbearing divided by the number of live births (or by the number of live births + fetal deaths) in that year. See the entire definition of Mortality rate
Mortality rate is the statistic which shows the total number of deaths usually (per thousand people) in a clear demographic set of people. If you happen to be in a group with a high mortality rate like people who have been habitual smokers for a number of years, your insurance rates will most likely be higher than those who have not been long-term smokers.
a mathematical calculation that shows the ratio of occurrence of death to a specific classification of people.
the rate at which a population or organisms are dying due to adverse environmental conditions, a disease situation or some other stress impacting the population.
See SN death rate
The proportion of a population that dies during a specified time period. Also referred to as the death rate.
The percentage of people expected to die at a specified age.
Incidence of death per 1,000 people.
The per capita death rate in a population. The mortality rate is the reciprocal of the population life expectancy.
How many people die in a year, usually expressed per 1 000 of the population.
an estimate of the proportion of a population that dies during a specified period. The numerator is the number of persons dying during the period; the denominator is the number in the population.
A death rate. There are a number of different types of mortality rates depending upon the population and illness being considered.
The frequency with which death occurs or is expected to occur among a defined group of people.
The death rate; the number of people who die of a certain disease compared with the total number of people. Mortality is most often stated as deaths per 1,000, per 10,000, or per 100,000 persons.
the number of deaths relative to the population.
