Age-Specific Death Rate

Output: Press calculate

Formula:ASDR = (deaths / population) × 1000

Introduction to Age-Specific Death Rate

Age-specific death rate is a measure used to quantify mortality risk for specific age groups within a population. It is calculated by dividing the number of deaths in a specific age group by the mid-year population of the same age group, then multiplying the result by 1000 to express the rate per 1000 individuals. The result provides a standardized measure of mortality risk that can be compared across different age groups and populations.

Parameter usage:


Data validation:

The numbers should be greater than or equal to zero. The population should not be zero to avoid division by zero.

Practical Applications:

ASDR is widely used in public health, demography, and epidemiology to analyze mortality patterns, identify vulnerable age groups, and assess the effectiveness of healthcare interventions and policies.


This calculator uses the number of deaths and mid-year population in a specific age group to calculate the age-specific death rate per 1000 individuals, providing a standardized measure of mortality risk.
