Demographics of Licking County

Number of Resident Deaths


Line Bar Comparison
Why Is This Important?

The number of deaths per year in Licking County has generally increased over the past decade. This increase was expected due to the increased total population in the county and the large cohort of aging residents over 50 (baby boomers).

Story Behind the Curve

To better understand the impact of resident deaths, other factors should be considered, especially the age of the decedents, the rate of deaths per 1,000 residents, the years of potential life lost (YPLL), the life expectancy, and the number of live births during that same time period (replacement rate).
