Death rate from intestinal infectious diseases Units: Deaths/100,000 Population Units: The final number is based on an aggregation of deaths recorded for WHO code B01 for all age groups by sex. These were then combined with UNPopulationDivisionpopulation data for the country in that particular year. The death rates were standardized utilizing the age structure for the population of Canada. See page 22 of the2001 ESI report for more details on the methodology.
Child death rate from respiratory diseases Units: Deaths/100,000 Population Aged 0-14 Units: The final number is based on an aggregation of deaths recorded for WHO codes B31 and B320, and B321, by sex and by age. These were then combined with UNPopulationDivisionpopulation data broken down by age group to produce rates. See page 22 of the 2001 ESI report for more details on the methodology.
