Notes:

Zero deaths are shown by a "—".

Rates are per 100,000 population for the specified age and sex group in the geographic area. Adding and subtracting the number shown after the symbol from the rate creates an interval indicating that the true rate lies between the lower and upper bounds with 95% statistical confidence.

"*" indicates the number of cases is too small (4 or less) to calculate a statistically reliable rate.
"**" indicates rate is greater than 0.0 but less than 0.1.
