Introduction

 This document was prepared for online/front end introductory information to
 the NIOSH Mortality/Population Data system on WONDER.


Description of the NIOSH Compressed Mortality File

 The NIOSH Compressed Mortality File is a county level national mortality
 dataset which spans the years 1960-1989.  Since complete race data was not
 available prior to 1970, records from 1960-1969 contain data for only two race
 groups (white, nonwhite) whereas the records for 1970-1989 contain data for
 three racial groups (white, black, other).  Each record summmerizes data for
 a five year calendar period (1960-1964, 1965-1969,..., 1985-1989).  Each
 record is further broken down into five year age groups (15-19, 20-24,...,
 80-84, 85+) by race, sex, and NIOSH's 92 categories of death (See Table of
 Contents - NIOSH Death Categories: Int'l Classification of Disease Groupings).
 The NIOSH Compressed Mortality File was created from the 1960-61 datasets
 previously acquired by NIOSH from NCHS and 1962-1987 NCHS datasets stored on
 CDC's mainframe computer as CC36.RSMORTXX, where XX represents the year.  All
 foreigners and age not stated have been removed from the mortality (numerator)
 dataset.  Deaths are categorized by state/county of residence at time of
 death.

Description of the NIOSH Compressed Population File

 The NIOSH Compressed Population file is a county level national population
 dataset spanning the years 1960-1989 processed into similar race and age
 groups derived from annual estimates for each U.S. county.  The 1960-1969
 data was acquired from Dr. Wilson Riggins, EPA.  This is updated data used in
 the preparation of the combined EPA and NCI publication, U.S. Cancer Mortality
 Rates and Trends, 1950-1979.  The 1970-1979, 1980-1989 data is stored on CDC's
 mainframe computer as CC36.INTERCEN.Y7080 and CC36.DEMODETL.CTY8089,
 respectively, and may be accessed through the WONDER system.  The file
 consists of 18,552 records with LRECL=457, each record contains 90 population
 counts.  The total number of population counts (data points) for the entire
 file equals 1,669,680.
BACKGROUND

Summary

 The rate activity exists to create national, state, county, and special rate
 files for use in NIOSH's Life Table Analysis System (LTAS).  The state
 and county rates generated by the NIOSH Mortality/Population Data WONDER
 system are saved as OS datasets for use elsewhere.

General Information

 ICD codes have been grouped into 92 categories of death (see NIOSH structure
 file) using the same categories as the NIOSH Life Table Analysis System (See
 reference 5).
DATA DESCRIPTION

 For data format Variables and their Categories.

 A.  Year codes:  Five year calendar periods starting from 1960.

 B.  State codes:  Typical FIPS state codes were used.

 C.  County codes:  Slightly modified FIPS county codes were used.  Since the
     data started before 1968 (the year FIPS codes were established) a few
     counties which existed prior to and not after 1968 were considered.
     Additionally, numerator data in four Texas counties (Hardeman, Hardin,
     Rockwall, Runnels) were partially estimated for the period 1960-1964.

  D.  Sex:  1-male, 2-female.

  E.  Age:  Ages 14 and under and not stated are excluded.

  F.  Race:  Entries coded as white were used as white, entires coded as black
      were used as black, all other entries were used as other.  New Jersey did
      not code race in 1962 or 1963, so the New Jersey deaths which occurred in
      1962 were replaced with the New Jersey deaths from 1961.  The New Jersey
      deaths occurring in 1963 were replaced with the New Jersey deaths from
      1964.

FIPS/NCHS Codes

 In the years 1960-1969 there are 3062 counties/independent cities.  The
 1970's and 1980's have 3107.  The restrictions placed on these mostly came
 from the population data that was available during processing (Fall 1990).
Modification of FIPS/NCHS codes

General Information

 Slight changes were made to county FIPS codes since data prior to 1968
 was used.

Area Recodes and Combination of Counties

 Due to the difference in the availability of county level data for numerators
 (NCHS data) and denominators (CENSUS data) some combining of
 counties/independent cities was necessary.  No Alaska counties are available.
 In other cases counties had to be combined for some years.  Table I lists
 counties which can be accessed on WONDER and the other counties included
 with listed county.
