Statistical presentation
Data description

The dead persons are surveyed. Registration is done at the moment of death and the number is calculated as of 31.12 of the reference year.

Mortality indicators are calculated based on data on deaths. The number of dead children up to one year of age is used for characterizing the infant mortality.

Life tables (biometric tables) and life expectancy are used for examining the age-specific mortality. They indicate the order of dying of a generation and reflect the gradual decrease of this generation due to the mortality. The life tables contain a system of an age-specific coefficients (presented as a function of the age) measuring the level of mortality during the separate time periods, survivors to a given age, life expectancy, etc.

Classification system

· Classification of Territorial Units for Statistical Purposes in Bulgaria (NUTS);

· Unified Classification of the Administrative-Territorial and Territorial Units in Bulgaria (UCATTU);

· International Classification of Diseases, X version.

Sector coverage

Mortality indicators are calculated for a calendar year. Dead persons are included with an usual residence (current address) in the Republic of Bulgaria.

Statistical concepts and definitions

Death means a termination of all vital functions without a possibility to be recovered.

Crude mortality rate

Represents the ratio of the number of deaths during the year to the average annual population in that year expressed per 1000 inhabitants.

Infant mortality rate

Represents the ratio of the number of deaths of children under one year of age during the year to the number of live births in that year expressed per 1000 live births.

Perinatal mortality rate

Perinatal mortality rate represents the ratio of the number of deaths of children under one week and the stillbirths during the year, to 1 000 births in that year (live births and stillbirths).

Neonatal mortality rate

Represents the ratio of the number of deaths of children under 28 days during the year to 1 000 live births in that year.

Late neonatal mortality rate

Represents the ratio of the number of deaths of children from 7th to 27th day during the year to the number of live births in that year.

Post-neonatal mortality rate

Represents the ratio of the number of deaths of children after the 28th day up to 1 year during the year to 1 000 live births, of which the number of deaths of children up to the 28th day is subtracted.

Life expectancy at birth

Represents the ratio between the sum of men-years which the persons who have reached a given age x will survive for the whole period of their future life (from age x to the upper limit age) to the number of persons who have survived the age x.

Probability for dying

Represents the ratio of the number of dead persons at each age and the size of population from which these persons originate.

Probability for surviving

Represents the ratio between the number of those who survive to age x+1 years and the number of those who survive to age x years.
