Information was obtained from the death registration documents of Mashhad University of Medical Sciences, and classified using the International Classification of Disease Control System, the tenth edition (ICD-10, 10th edition).

The mortality rate has doubled in men than women. The average age of dead person was 43.6±23.9 years. There was a significant correlation between age at death, mode of transport, and place of residence in different years (p <0.05). The highest percentage of deaths was in the summer and July and May months.
