# Crude Death Rate

**Formula:**`CDR = (Number of Deaths / Total Population) x 1000`

## Introduction to Crude Death Rate

The crude death rate is a demographic measurement representing the number of deaths in a specified population. It is calculated by dividing the number of deaths by the total population and then multiplying the result by 1000. The result is expressed as the number of deaths per 1000 individuals in the population.

## Parameter usage:

`numberOfDeaths`

= total number of deaths`totalPopulation`

= total population size

## Output:

`CDR`

= crude death rate per 1000 individuals

## Data validation

The numbers should be greater than or equal to 0.

## Summary

This formula is a useful tool for analyzing the mortality rate within a population and comparing it with other populations or across different time periods.
