Crude Death Rate India

Catalog Info

The Crude Death Rate (CDR) 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. Primary source of data for births and deaths is the registration of births and deaths under Civil Registration System (CRS) of the Office of Registrar General, India (ORGI). Since the reporting of deaths under CRS is not Complete, ORGI estates CDR annually through Sample Registration System, a large scale demographic survey conducted by them.
