World Mortality Report 2011


World Mortality 2011 presents key indicators of mortality at the global, regional and country levels. The wall chart highlights variations among countries in a number of indicators of mortality: annual deaths; crude death rates; life expectancy at birth by sex; infant mortality; under-five mortality; and probabilities of dying from birth to age 15, from age 15 to age 60, and from birth to age 60. Estimates of mortality are complemented by information related to major causes of death, such as the death rates due to three broad groups of causes, the percentage of deaths from non-communicable diseases occurring before age 60, AIDS deaths, and the maternal mortality ratio (United Nations publication, Sales No. E.11.XIII.9).
