Enter the number of deaths and the total population into the Crude Death Rate Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Crude Death Rate.

## Crude Death Rate Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Crude Death Rate.

CRUDE = D / P

- Where CRUDE is the Crude Death Rate (deaths/population)
- #D is the number of deaths
- P is the total population

To calculate the crude death rate, divide the number of deaths by the total population.

## How to Calculate Crude Death Rate?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Crude Death Rate.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the number of deaths.
- The number of deaths is given as: 5.

- Next, determine the total population.
- The total population is provided as: 1,000.

- Finally, calculate the Crude Death Rate using the equation above:

CRUDE = #D / P

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

CRUDE = 5 / 1000 = .005 (deaths/population)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

number of deaths = 6

total population = 500

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

CRUDE = #D / P** = ?**
