Low death rate in Almeria


ALMERIA had one of the lowest mortality rates in the country in 2016, according to a new report.

The Spanish National Institute of Statistics has released its latest demographic report relating to mortality across Spain and in the province of Almeria, the number of deaths stands at 6.87 per thousand, compared to the national average of 8.34.

The data, which refers to 2016, indicates the mortality rate declined in most cases including for the most advanced age groups.

It did, however, identify people close to 50-years-old as being the most vulnerable age group last year.

Only the provinces of Ceuta, Melilla, Las Palmas, Santa Cruz de Tenerife and the Madrid region have a mortality rate less than Almeria.
