||Rates are per 100,000 population. 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).
Minor Civil Division (MCD) means city, township or village.
MCD data contained in vital statistics data files, and reports developed from the files, are based upon the information supplied to the department in the course of registering vital events. Special studies of MCD data quality revealed that there are inaccuracies in these data. The degree of inaccuracy encountered is as high as 25 percent. Any use of these data, especially for comparisons across MCDs, may be affected by inaccurate reporting. The most common mis-allocation error occurs with smaller cities or villages, surrounded by a township. People providing information for the vital record stipulate that the subject of the vital record or the decedent lives in a city, rather than in a township which was their actual residence. This is usually because the subject's post office address is the city. When rates calculated from these data differ substantially from State or county rates, one should consider whether the events were allocated to the proper MCD.

Population estimates (latest update 2/2010), for minor civil divisions were estimated using spatial aggregation and other statistical methods to combine several data sources. The data sources include: the Michigan Live Birth registry; the Synergos Technologies, Inc. population database; and the American Factfinder demographic survey. Race data was estimated only for cities with populations above 40,000..
