Death/Mortality Rate :
This is the ratio of total deaths to total population in a specific community or area over a specified period of time.
There are many factors that influences death rate, Some includes:
Hundreds of thousands of families throughout the region can't grow enough food to survive. Farmers have less to sell in the markets, and the price of what is available is out of reach for most poor families. Even the game and wild fruits that communities rely on in times of trouble have been depleted. Many families have been forced to sell their livestock and other possessions to buy food. But this is only a temporary solution. Severe hunger -- even starvation -- threatens millions, particularly among the most vulnerable: children, the elderly, and pregnant and nursing women.
