mortality

Death rate Epidemiology A health statistic that corresponds to the total number of deaths per unit time in a population divided by the population's number, ergo deaths/1000 population. See Infant mortality, Neonatal mortality, Operative mortality, Post-neonatal mortality, Proportionate mortality.
Mortality–data of interest
Leading causes of mortality–US Cardiovascular–ASHD and aneurysm disease 39%, CA 22%, CVAs 7.6%, accidents 4.6%, pneumonia or influenza 3%, lung disease 3%, DM-related 1.8%, suicide 1.4%, cirrhosis 1.3%, nephritis 1.0%, homicide 1.0%, etc to 100%
Mortality rate in viral infections Rabies 99%, HIV 50+%, Ebola 20-80%, HBV 3-5%, polio ± 0.1%
Mortality < age 19 Fatal injuries–MVAs 47%–33% occupants, 8% pedestrians, homicide 13%–usually firearms, suicide 9.6%–?:/, 4:1, drowning 9%–most common in those < age 4, 90% in residential pools, fire/burns 7%–most < age 4, black:white ratio, 3:1
