DIRECT STANDARDIZATION 1. What is the crude death rate for non-white females and for white females? Crude death rate formula is deaths occurring during a given time period divided by the size of the population among which the deaths occurred times 10 n (Total deaths/total mid-year pop) X 1000 Total deaths for non-white females: 7861 Total mid-year pop for non-white females: 1200132 7861/1200132= .00655 .00655 x 1000= 6.55 deaths per 1000 non-white females Total deaths for white females: 66133 Total mid-year pop for non-white females: 6399544 66133/6399544= .0103 .0103 x 1000= 10.3 deaths per 1000 white females 2. What are the age-specific death rates per 1,000 population for each age group for non- white and white females? Age specific death rates are calculated by dividing the number of deaths for a specific age group by the total population of that age group and then multiplying that by 1000. (Number of deaths/ total pop of age group) X 1000 Age specific death rates for non-white females <1= 10.67 1-4= .63 5-14= .26 15-24= .76 25-34= 2.05 35-44= 3.19 45-54= 5.06 55-64= 12.58 65-74= 26.24 75-84= 53.38 85+= 131.08 Age specific death rates for white females

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
