Causes of death by rate
Causes of death by rate
Leading causes of death are always ranked in relationship to one another. This means the rank of a specific cause may change even if its mortality rate has not changed. On the other hand, the ranking can remain the same even if its mortality rate increases or decreases.
Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the leading cause of death worldwide, and their incidence continues to increase as a result of changes in lifestyle and the increase in average lifespan. Previous studies reported that in Europe alone around 4 million people die of CVD every year, accounting for 44% of all deaths. Heart disease has remained the leading cause of death at the global level for the last 20 years. However, it is now killing more people than ever before. The number of deaths from heart disease increased by more than 2 million since 2000, to nearly 9 million in 2019. Men are more likely than women to die from heart disease.
