causes of death are listed in order of the 10 leading causes of death for Michigan residents in 2007.
*: An asterisk (*) indicates that the data do not meet standards of reliability or precision.
Data displayed are by the underlying cause of death which is the condition giving rise to the chain of events leading to death. Causes of death are classified in accordance with the Tenth Revision of the International Classifications of Diseases (ICD-10), a coding structure developed by the World Health Organization. This revision has been used to classify deaths occurring on or after January 1, 1999. The ICD-10 codes are grouped into broader categories for the causes listed in this table in order to classify these selected causes of death (e.g., ICD-10 codes C00-C97 are used to indicate deaths due to cancer).

Census tract population poverty was estimated using methods recommended from the Public Health Disparities Geocoding Project. In particular, the DVRHS linked annual PopStats population estimates to the 2000 US Census census tract poverty percents to estimate census tract poverty for the current year(s). The data was proportionally fitted to the CDC Bridged Population Estimates.
Poverty estimates are unknown for some census tracts. These tracts tend to be comprised of institutional populations with age groups between 15-34. For this reason, population among census tract poverty groups does not sum to the total (the CDC bridged estimated total).
