Sure, but it would be normal and usual to expect a higher total count of deaths if your population is higher. Assuming the death rate was the same.One also might want to measure the numbers on a per 100,000 basis. The U.S. has 350 million people. Italy, 60 million.
Anyway if there's one thing this thread has proven it's that old adage about lies, damned lies, and statistics.
The ratio, or rate, is by FAR the most honest measure when comparing apples to apples analysis. Although it would still be important to categorize by age group as well.
