Mortality in Kazakhstan decreased by 26%

Kazakhstan returned to the "pre-pandemic" mortality rate. According to operational data, 134.7 thousand people died in the country in 2022, a quarter less than in the same period in 2021. The crude death rate in 2022 (6.77) dropped even below the pre-COVID-19 levels (7.19). This is reported in the Energyprom.kz article.
Mortality in Kazakhstan decreased by 26%

The structure of mortality rationale has not changed fundamentally in 2022. The main “killers” are still considered diseases of circulatory system, their share in the overall mortality statistics last year was 22.6% (a year earlier - 23.7%). Cancer and other neoplasms (10.3%) are in the second place. Respiratory diseases make almost the same share in mortality (9.7%).

The number of deaths from heart and circulatory system diseases in 2022 reduced almost in the same way as many of “other causes”: minus 30% and minus 31.6%, respectively. However, the number of deaths from heart attacks, strokes and other problems of the cardiovascular system in absolute terms decreased by only 13 thousand people.

After the end of the pandemic, the decrease of mortality rates from respiratory diseases is logical: minus 7.7 thousand cases, or 36.9%. For all other categories, the number of deaths last year dropped to the level of 2019.
