Age Specific Mortality Rate (ASMR)

As a general rule, in all settings, the mortality rates are high during infancy and early childhood and

fall to their lowest levels between the ages of 5 and 14 years. Subsequently, mortality rates start to

rise with increasing age and increase exponentially beyond the age of 35 or so.

The ASMR for Niue reflects this expected pattern. This is used as a measure of data quality and

indicates that there are unlikely to be major biases or gaps in the reported data.
