description:
The agency created these files in order to conduct a wide range of analyses about the underlying cause and demographic and geographic data regarding deaths. This series includes information about deaths by multiple causes occurring in the United States and U.S. commonwealths and territories. Deaths of U.S. citizens and deaths of members of the Armed Forces occurring outside the United States are not included.This health data was obtained from death certificates filed in each state. Data we re obtained from all certificates for 1968-71, 1973-80, and 1983-2002. Data were obtained from a 50-percent sample of certificates for 1972. Multiple-cause data for 1981 and 1982 were obtained from a 50-percent sample of certificates from 19 registration areas. For the other States, data were obtained from all certificates. The user must be aware that the multiple-cause files and the underlying cause files for 1981 and 1982 differ in that the underlying cause files were processed on a 100-percent basis. Information, including demographic data such as age at death, race, occupation, and sex; geographic data, such as state and population size; and details regarding the death, such as the date and place of death, the underlying cause of death, and whether an autopsy took place are included in this series. This data comprises government records extracted from the Archival Research Catalog (ARC). See the ARC catalog entry for this series for more information on this data and how to order it.
