Objectives:Death statistics are useful in determining the trends and differences in death in society, priorities in biomedical research, public health programs, decisions on the distribution of funding resources, and aspects of epidemiological studies. We aimed to identify death rates and common causes of death in Turkey and help healthcare providers to be prepared for challenges in daily practice and the future.

Methods:In our study, Turkey Statistical Institute (TÜİK) 's website different from the times and statistical data from different sources that share has been used. From the TÜİK database, the causes of death, death rates and population data between 2009-2016 were collected and classified.

Results:Death rate tends to increase in both genders each year between 2009 and 2016 in Turkey. The most common cause of death is circulatory system diseases. Majority of deaths occurred in winter months. When regional distribution of diseases were investigated, it was determined that death related to circulatory and respiratory systems were higher in Western and Eastern parts of the Karadeniz region. When both genders are considered, circulatory system disorders, malignities and respiratory system disorders are the most common causes of death.

Conclusion:Determination of death rates and causes of death help public health providers to predict outcomes and to use funding sources rationally by reducing health expenses.
