Crude mortality rate:

The crude mortality rate is the proportion of people who die relative to the total population in a given period of time . It is usually expressed as the number of deaths per year per 100,000 people.

Age-Adjusted Rate:

The purpose of adjusting for age is to obtain mortality rates without an age effect in order to compare mortality between provinces with different demographic pyramids . It is a weighted average where the weights are obtained from the so-called "standard populations". The most commonly used populations are European and world populations.

Truncated rate

Adjusted mortality rate limited to 35-64 years old.

Accumulated Rate:

This indicator is a percentage that represents the risk of death from birth to age 75 provided that, there were no competing causes of death. It is also an indicator adjusted for age and comparable across provinces.

CMF (Mortality Comparative Figure)

It is the ratio of the age-adjusted rate in each province and the adjusted rate for all of Spain .
