I'm trying to figure out how many people die every day in Vancouver BC (Canada). Not just unnatural deaths, all of em.

Maybe you guys know a website that gives this information? Or, perhaps you work in the reapers office and know the answer off the top of your head?

cheers

Have you tried this site:

http://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/91-002-x/91-002-x2010001-eng.htm

or you could contact them with your specific question.
That kind of stats are usually publicly available. The data I've seen is always per year, but I assume you just want an average and so all you do is divide by the number of days.

If you want a rough figure, take the population and divide it by the life expectancy in days. For Canada, this would be about 30,000 days. So in the city of Vancouver, there would be 20 deaths/day, and in the metro area, 70. If the population were rapidly expanding, as in some third world countries, it would be less than this.

The world mortality rate they give is 8.6/1000 people, which is obviously based on a very young population. This would give 14 deaths/day for a city the size of Vancouver, but Vancouver's population is older, and so the deaths/day will be greater.

I die a little each day. It'll probably add up to a full death, eventually.

The 8.6 rate appears to be the generally accepted rate for the world. I didn't search for Vancouver in particular, but the death rate for Canada for 2009 was 7.74. And rates for Vancouver are Life Expectancy

National average (2005): F 83.6 years M 76.7 years
Metro Vancouver (2006): F 84.0 years M 79.5 years
Birth Rate: 10.84/1000
Death rate: 7.73/1000

That means that 4509 deaths in Vancouver or 16480 deaths in Metro Vancouver.

I didn't. I'll have to do a complete scan soon.
