Crude death rate SEA 2019 by country

In 2019, Myanmar had the highest crude death rate among the Southeast Asian countries with 8.2 deaths per thousand population, followed by Thailand, Indonesia and Laos. In 2015, Myanmar had the second-highest infant mortality rate with 46 thousand infant deaths per thousand live births in Southeast Asia.

Factors that influence the death rate

The death rate, also called mortality rate, is generally influenced by various factors such as the social environment, diseases, health facilities and services as well as the food supply of the respective countries. Myanmar’s government spent five percent of its public budget on health in 2016. In 2016, health expenditure per capita in Myanmar amounted to 70.2 U.S. dollars which accounted for 5.7 percent of the GDP. In comparison, the Maldives had the lowest crude death rate in the Asia Pacific region in the same period. There, health expenditure accounted for 13.73 percent of the country’s GDP. Furthermore, the share of undernourished people was at 10.5 percent in Myanmar in 2016. Within Southeast Asia, Myanmar has also been one of the poorest countries.
