Standard mortality rate, which is the ratio of the actual number of deaths in the population under study and the number of deaths that would have occurred if the population under study had experienced the age-specific death rates of the standard population ( DPIWE 1999). The standardised mortality rate removes the effect of different age structures of the population, and allows a more meaningful comparison of the death rates of different sub-populations. It allows a comparison of death rates between populations with different age structures by relating them to a standard population. It is the overall death rate that would have prevailed in the standard population if it had experienced at each age the death rates of the population under study.
