According to the CIA the total death rate for the world in 2006 was 8.67 deaths per thousand populations. The number of people who died the world over was fifty seven million twenty seven thousand. Thirty two percent of these died because of communicable disease and nutritional deficiencies. Since Third World is more of an ideological term it is hard to specify which nations are Third World. It was a term used to define nations that were non aligned during the Second World War.

Nations generally classify themselves as either under developed or developing these days. The death rate in the Third World is generally supposed to be higher than in the developed countries. There are of course exceptions, as in the case of Cuba or Azerbaijan, the former having a well developed health care system and the latter having a larger than normal life expectancy.
