Mortality from non-communicable diseases

What does it mean ?

Mortality rate attributed to cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes or chronic respiratory disease is the probability of dying between the ages of 30 and 70 years from cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes or chronic respiratory diseases. It is defined as the percentage of 30-year-old-people who would die before their 70th birthday from cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, or chronic respiratory disease, assuming that they would experience current mortality rates at every age and would not die from any other cause of death, such as injuries or HIV/AIDS. The probability of dying is the likelihood that an individual would die between two ages given the current rates of mortality at each age.

Why does it matter ?

The burden of disease from non-communicable diseases (NCDs) among adults is rapidly increasing in developing countries due to ageing and transitions in health. Cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes and chronic respiratory diseases are the four main causes of NCD burden. Measuring the risk of dying from these four causes is important to determine the extent of the burden from premature mortality attributed to NCDs in a population. This indicator has been selected to monitor progress toward the "25 by 25" NCD mortality target. This is an indicator for monitoring Sustainable Development Goal 3. Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages; Target 3.4: By 2030, reduce by one third premature mortality from non-communicable diseases through prevention and treatment and promote mental health and well-being. It is also an indicator for monitoring the Global Strategy for Women's, Children's and Adolescents' Health (2016-2030).

How is it collected ?

The preferred sources of data are civil registration systems with complete coverage and medical certification of causes of death. Other possible sources of data include household surveys with verbal autopsy, and sample or sentinel registration systems.

More about indicator and sources

The preferred sources of data are vital registration systems that record deaths with sufficient completeness to allow estimation of death rates for all causes. For countries without death registration data of high quality, cause of death estimates are calculated using other data sources, which include household surveys with verbal autopsy, sample or sentinel registration systems, special studies and surveillance systems.

More information on calculations

The probability of death between exact age 30 and exact age 70 was calculated by WHO using cause-specific mortality rates in each 5-year age group and by using standard life table methods. The estimates are derived from the WHO Global Health Estimates from 2016 which represent the best estimates of WHO, computed using standard categories, definitions and methods to ensure cross-country comparability, and may not be the same as official national estimates. Due to changes in input data and methods, the data shown here are not comparable to previously published WHO estimates. You can read more details about the methods from this link: http://www.who.int/healthinfo/global_burden_disease/GlobalCOD_method_2000_2016.pdf
