From the relatively high rates of death in infancy (age 0), age-specific death rates (ASDRs) sharply decline through childhood.

In 2005, Tasmania's lowest ASDRs were experienced by males aged 5-9 years and 10–14 years and females aged 1–14 years. Generally throughout the life span, ASDRs are higher for males. However, the difference between the sexes becomes more prominent after the age of 64 years.
