OECD Mortality Statistics By Cause Of Death

$447.50 / year

This dataset contains mortality statistics for countries members of OECD (The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development), for OECD key partners and countries in accession negotiations with OECD. The estimated values of the three mortality indicators: number of deaths, crude rate and age-adjusted rate, cover periods from 1960 to 2015.


The dataset is provided by OECD (The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) whose mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. OECD’s work is based on continued monitoring of events in member countries as well as outside OECD area, and includes regular projections of short and medium-term economic developments. The OECD Secretariat collects and analyses data, after which committees discuss policy regarding this information, the Council makes decisions, and then governments implement recommendations.

The OECD Health Datasets offers the most comprehensive source of comparable statistics on health and health systems across OECD countries. It is an essential tool to carry out comparative analyses and draw lessons from international comparisons of diverse health systems. For the number of deaths and mortality crude rates OECD used the number of deaths according to sex and selected causes provided the World Health Organization Mortality Database. The age-adjusted mortality rates per 100,000 population for selected causes are calculated by the OECD Secretariat, using the total OECD population for 2010 as the reference population. The direct method of standardization was used for age-standardized calculations. The age-standardized death rates are necessary for comparing the level of mortality across countries and over time since they take into account the differences in age structure of the populations. The crude mortality rates like the age-adjusted rates are calculated per 100,000 population.

Breaks in the time-related continuity of data on which the estimated mortality values are based are specified in the content of the dataset.
