Confronting the mortality of the world around us can lead us to reflect more earnestly about our priorities – and provide us with a sense of urgency of purpose.
According to Ecology Global Network (EGN), Statisticians have calculated the “mortality rate” for the world to be roughly 883 percent. This means that 1 out of every 113 people in the world died last year.
Based on this rate, here is an estimate of the incidence of death among people now living in the world:
1.78 deaths per second
107 deaths per minute
6,390 deaths per hour
153,000 deaths per day
However, In Ghana as of the end of 2018, the natural increase was positive, as the number of births exceeded the number of deaths by 706,859 whiles 266,454 deaths were recorded in 2018.
