Age Adjusted Death Rate

Age Adjusted Death Rate

A death rate that controls for the effects of differences in population age distributions, a value which indicates the risk of dying relative to a standard population. The AADR is thought to be more efficient than crude death rates for comparing mortality of population groups with different age structures.
