USA: Death rate, per 1000 people: For that indicator, The World Bank provides data for the USA from 1960 to 2015. The average value for the USA during that period was 8.75 deaths per 1000 people with a minumum of 7.9 deaths per 1000 people in 2009 and a maximum of 9.8 deaths per 1000 people in 1968. See the global rankings for that indicator or use the country comparator to compare trends over time.
Definition: Crude death rate indicates the number of deaths occurring during the year, per 1,000 population estimated at midyear. Subtracting the crude death rate from the crude birth rate provides the rate of natural increase, which is equal to the rate of population change in the absence of migration.
