Mortality rate attributed to cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes or chronic respiratory disease per 1,000 population.


Mortality is the process of generation extinction, one of the two main sub-processes of population reproduction. Among causes are diseases, pathological conditions or injuries that lead to or contribute to death, as well as accidents or acts of violence that cause fatal injuries. Cause of death has been coded since 2000. Based on the World Health Organization 10 Revision of International Statistical Classification of Diseases, Injuries, and Causes of Death (ICD-10).

Rationale and interpretation

Disease burden from non-communicable diseases (NCDs) among adults is rapidly increasing in developing countries due to ageing. Cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes and chronic respiratory diseases are the four main causes of NCD burden. Measuring the risk of dying from these four major causes is important to assess the extent of burden from premature mortality due NCDs in a population.

Method of computation

Mortality rates by causes of death are the ratio of deaths from these causes to the annual average population as currently estimated. Calculated per 100,000 population.

Comments and limitations

Get acquainted with coding rules for the primary cause of death and definitions set out in the revised International Statistical Classification of Diseases (ICD-10). In case of difficulties with diagnosis, contact staff of the E-Health Center of the Ministry of Health to consult for the final diagnosis.

Quality assurance

Logical and arithmetic control of recorded data is carried out. Data control in data records is carried out by logical control procedure embedded in the data input and processing software. The causes of death codes are checked along diagnoses recorded in death report, according to ICD-10, and results tables are analyzed for causes of death.

Data availability and gaps

Data on deaths from cardiovascular diseases and neoplasms (cancer) are published in the statistical compendium “Demographic Yearbook of the Kyrgyz Republic”, and on the National Statistical Committee’s website. Time series have been available since 1990.


Territorial data aggregation: country, region, district. Data aggregation by sex: total, men, women.

Comparability with international data/standards

International definition of the indicator is used for national statistics. Data coding and compilation on deaths by cause of death is done by state statistics authorities in accordance with the WHO International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Causes of Death (ICD-10), since 2000 report. By agreement with the National Statistical Committee, database on mortality is submitted to the Centre for Electronic Health of the Ministry of Health of the Kyrgyz Republic: Form 2 «Information on the number of births, marriages, divorces and deaths by cause of death» is submitted monthly, with a delay of 1.5 months from the reporting month and form C52 «Population mortality by cause of death» submitted annually, in June following the reporting year.

Data sources

Cause of death information is obtained from medical death certificates drawn up by doctors or mid-level medical personnel on disease, accident, homicide, suicide and other external influences resulting in death. These documents, along with civil registration of deaths are sent to statistical agencies for calculation.

Data collection methods

Mortality data are obtained from the annual statistical compilation of official records of deaths drawn up by the civil registration offices (The Civil Registration Office of the State Registration Service under GKR). Aggregated data are collected and processed by the regional statistical offices and the National Statistical Committee of the Kyrgyz Republic.
