Note: Rows do not sum to the listed totals because not all causes of registered deaths are listed on this table.

To calculate the percent of registered deaths in a country that were due to a particular cause, divide the number of registered deaths in a country due to a certain cause by the total number of registered deaths in the country and multiply the result by 100. Example: Calculate the percent of registered deaths in Austria due to diseases of the circulatory system. This calculation would be 40,111/76,780=.522 and .522x100=52.2%
