Ukraine outperforms African countries by death and emigration rate

Following the results of 2016, Ukraine took the second place in the world by the rate of the population's mortality and emigration from the country, reported the political scientist Dmitry Dzhangirov on air of UkrLife.

According to him, by these indicators Ukraine outperformed even some African countries.

"For 2016 Ukraine became the second in the world on mortality rate among the population and, according to my data, the second in emigration rate. There are those African countries shown to us [on the list], and, well, still more people fled from Ukraine. 6,3 out of one thousand residents is the rate revealing how many people have left the country. It's clear that this figure is accounted for one thousand residents, but what as for labour force," said Dzhangirov.
