The estimation of crude death rate when the data affected by different under-registration.



In focusing on the estimation of crude death rate when the data are affected by different underregistration, the attempt is made to extend the growth balance method to cover cases when there are 2 different proportionate underregistrations. It is shown that the difference in underregistration may be fully accounted for once the age groups suffering unequal underreport are located. 2 numerical applications are illustrated -- on hypothetical data and on actual data for Iraq for 1960-1970.
