Note: Age groups do not add to respective totals because records with age not stated are included only in the "All Ages" row. Rates may not agree with those shown elsewhere in this section since records with sex and race not stated were randomly allocated prior to rate calculation for the other tables, and were not included in calculations for this table. Cause-specific rates are per 100,000 population.

Infant deaths were grouped according to 71 rankable causes of infant death from 130 Causes of Infant Death. For other age groups, deaths were grouped according to 50 rankable causes of death from 113 Selected Causes of Death. See ICD-10 Cause of Death Lists of Tabulating Mortality Statistics for a detailed lists of ICD-10 groupings.
