The death rate by country (2009 CIA World Factbook figures).

This article includes two versions of the list of countries by crude mortality rate.

Methodology[edit]

Crude mortality rate refers to the number of deaths over a given period divided by the person-years lived by the population over that period. It is expressed as number of deaths per 1,000 population.

The first list is based on the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) "2011 annual statistics". Lists 236 countries and territories in 2011 crude death rate.

The second list is based on CIA World Factbook estimates[1] Dependent territories and not fully recognized states are not ranked.
