For communities in Michigan, certain numbers are censored to conform with confidentiality standards. Double asterisks ("**") indicate that the number of deaths is suppressed. The symbols "[1-5]" indicate that the total number of deaths in the category is between 1 and 5. The symbols "[6-10]" indicates that the total number of deaths in the category is between 6 and 10.

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).

All Ages column includes deaths with age not stated.

The asterisk (*) preceding the "U" codes for homicide and suicide indicates codes that were introduced by the United States to classify deaths due to terrorism, but which are not officially part of the WHO’s ICD code book.
