calculate total age specific death rate, Microeconomics

1. Definition:

AGE-SPECIFIC DEATH RATE is the total number of deaths to residents of a specified age or age group in a specified geographic area (country, state, county, etc.) divided by the population of the same age or age group in the same geographic area (for a specified time period, usually a calendar year) and multiplied by 100,000

2. Calculation:

(Total Deaths in Specified Age Group/Total Population in the Same Specified ) X 100,000

3. Example:

37 deaths among New Mexico children ages 1 through 14 during calendar year 2006.

381,910 = estimated 2006 mid-year New Mexico population aged 1-14.

(37 / 381,910) x 100,000 = 9.7 unintentional injury deaths per 100,000 population aged 1 through 14 during calendar year 2006 in New Mexico.

67.5 average annual Alzheimer's disease deaths (ICD-10: G30) among persons aged 85 and over in Salt Lake County, Utah during calendar years 2006 & 2007. 10,160 - average annual estimated 2006, 2007 Salt Lake County mid-year population, persons aged 85+. 67.5 average annual Alzheimer's disease deaths per 100,000 population age 85 and over in Salt Lake County, Utah during calendar years 2006 & 2007.
