Global Mortality Rate 1970 to 2016

$447.50 / year

This dataset includes estimates for age-standardized adult mortality rate and 95% uncertainty interval estimates by location, male, female and both sexes combined in 1970, 1975, 1980, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000, 2005, 2010, 2016. This age-specific mortality dataset is used to enable health systems to target interventions for the adult populations.

Complexity

This dataset is from Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (GBD 2016) estimates of age-specific and sex-specific all-cause mortality between 1970 and 2016 for 195 countries and territories and at the subnational level for the five countries with a population greater than 200 million in 2016.

Detailed assessments of mortality patterns, particularly age-specific mortality, in this dataset, the under 5 years of age, are useful in enabling health systems to target interventions to specific population groups.

Results of the study showed that 1970–2016, mortality rates in men aged 25–49 years increased in 32 (16%) of 195 countries; for women in this age range, mortality rates increased in 18 (9%) countries. Increased mortality rates were more common in the earlier periods analyzed, particularly for men; in this age group, the mortality rate increased in 62 (32%) countries from 1980 to 1990 and increased in 100 (51%) countries from 1990 to 2000. For another subset of countries—27 (14%) countries for men and 55 (28%) countries for women—mortality in younger adults declined by at least 2% per year from 1970 to 2016.

The study is published in The Lancet in September 2017 in “Global, regional, and national under-5 mortality, adult mortality, age-specific mortality, and life expectancy, 1970-2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016”.
