There were 8,651 deaths and 14,662 births reported in Hillsborough County in the year 2000. If there were 998,948 people living in county during the year (calculated at mid-year), what is the crude death rate for Hillsborough County for the year 2000?

Accepted Solution

Crude birth rate is all the time reported per 1000 living people. To compute for this, the formula is number of births x 1000 divided by the estimated population at midyear. So plugging in the values given: 14,662 x 1000 divided by 994,948 = 14662000 / 994948 = 14.68 per 1000 living people.
