  • DSU - Data statistically unreliable.

Methodology

  • ICD-10 codes used cover accidental, intentional, and of undetermined poisoning by and exposure to: 1) nonopioid analgesics, antipyretics and antirheumatics, 2) antiepileptic, sedative-hypnotic, antiparkinsonism and psychotropic drugs, not elsewhere classified 3) narcotics and psychodysleptics [hallucinogens], not elsewhere classified, 4) other drugs acting on the autonomic nervous system, and 5) other and unspecified drugs, medicaments and biological substances.
  • Estimates based on fewer than 20 deaths are considered unreliable and are not displayed.
  • FOR SINGLE DATA YEARS: Rates are calculated based on the April 1 census counts for the censal years (e.g., 2000) and July 1 estimates from the Vintage matching the data year for the postcensal period. For example, for rates of data year 2004, the 2004 population estimates from Vintage 2004 are used as denominator. FOR MULTIPLE DATA YEARS: Rates are calculated based on sum of data year populations from the Vintage matching the data years.  For example, for rates of data years 2004-2006 combined, the sum of 2004 population from Vintage 2004, 2005 population from Vintage 2005, and 2006 population from Vintage 2006 are used as denominator.
  • FOR MULTIPLE DATA YEARS: Rates are calculated based on sum of data year populations from the Vintage matching the data years.  For example, for rates of data years 2004-2006 combined, the sum of 2004 population from Vintage 2004, 2005 population from Vintage 2005, and 2006 population from Vintage 2006 are used as denominator.
  • This Indicator uses Age-Adjustment Groups: < 1, 1-4, 5-14, 15-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54, 55-64, 65-74, 75-84, 85+

Data Source(s)

  • National Vital Statistics System-Mortality (NVSS-M)

    Description Vital statistics mortality data are a fundamental source of demographic, geographic, and cause-of-death information. This is one of the few sources of comparable health-related data for small geographic areas over an extended time period. The data are used to present characteristics of those dying in the United States, to determine life expectancy, and to compare mortality trends with those in other countries.

    MethodologyThe National Vital Statistics System Mortality component (NVSS-M) obtains information on deaths from the registration offices of each of the 50 states, New York City, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and Northern Mariana Islands. By law, registration of deaths is the responsibility of the funeral director. The funeral director obtains demographic data from an informant. The physician in attendance at the death is required to certify the cause of death. When death is from other than natural causes, a coroner or medical examiner may be required to examine the body and certify cause. State death certificates are modeled on a U.S. Standard Certificate that is revised periodically. States provide the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) with death records in electronic format.
