Suppose that in​ 2008, 673,400 citizens died of a certain disease. Assuming the population of the country is 294 ​million, what was the mortality rate in units of deaths per​ 100,000 people?

Solution:

Given:

Number of Deaths due to a certain disease = 673,400

N = Total population Size = 294 million = 294,000,000

We have to find the mortality rate in units of deaths per​ 100,000 people

Thus

The mortality rate in units of deaths per​ 100,000 people = ( Number of Deaths due to a certain disease / N) x 100,000

The mortality rate in units of deaths per​ 100,000 people = (673,400 / 294,000,000) x 100,000

The mortality rate in units of deaths per​ 100,000 people = 0.00229048 x 100,000

The mortality rate in units of deaths per​ 100,000 people = 229.048

The mortality rate in units of deaths per​ 100,000 people = 229.0
