    Date 2018-07-10

    This is the result of looking at KOSTAT’s Death Statistics from 1986 to 2016 on mortality rates by sex. Overall, the mortality rate for men is higher than the women’s but compared to 30 years ago (1986), men have seen a decrease in deaths per 100,000 population but there has been a slight increase in women.

    Specifically looking at it, as of 1986, 672.9 men per 100,000 population died but over the next 20 years, male mortality rate has decreased slightly. As a result, in 2006, mortality rate for males was recorded as 545.7 deaths per 100,000 population which was the lowest among the survey period. After that the rate becomes slightly increased so by 2011 and 2016, there have been 571.1 and 597.5 deaths per 100,000 population respectively.


    Even for women, the decline is less pronounced than the men but the decrease of women’s mortality rate has been recorded after 1986 to 2006 so the number of deaths per 100,000 population decreased from 486.7 in 1986 to 445.2 in 2006. Then there has been slight increase so 456.0 people and 501.5 people per 100,000 people died in 2011 and 2016 respectively.
