Indicator notes:
Crude death rate per 1000 population, females
Indicator code: E998005.F This indicator shares the definition with the parent indicator \"Crude death rate per 1000 population\".

A simple ratio of a number of deaths registered during the year and the mid-year population for the same year, multiplied by 1000. The crude death rate (CDR) normally should not be used for international comparisons as it strongly depends on the age structure of the populations being compared and may be misleading. For example, CDR for a developing country generally is lower than the CDR for a developed country, due purely to different population structures, i.e. older population in the developed country.

For international comparisons the age-standardized death rates (SDRs) are preferable._
