Underlying Cause-of-Death
  • Compressed Mortality Data

The Compressed Mortality data include mortality and population counts for all U.S. counties for the years 1968 to 2016. Counts and rates of death can be obtained by underlying cause of death, state, county, age, race, sex, and year. For more information, refer to Compressed Mortality data description.

Select from following:

The International Classification of Diseases 8th Revision (ICD 8) codes are used to specify underlying cause of death for years 1968 - 1978. The International Classification of Diseases 9th Revision (ICD 9) codes are used to specify underlying cause of death for years 1979 - 1998. Beginning in 1999, cause of death is specified with the International Classification of Diseases 10th Revision (ICD 10) codes. The ICD revisions differ substantially, and to prevent confusion about the significance of any specific disease code, the data queries are separate.
