Note: Population estimates for 1971-1979 have been revised by the U.S. Census Bureau. Population estimates for 1980-1989 have been revised by the Department of Management &  Budget in February, 1996. Population estimates for 1990-1999 have been revised by the Department of Management & Budget in October, 2000. For years prior to 1950 deaths under 1 month of age are included in deaths under 28 days. 1974 divorce data is an estimate.

Tripple dashes ("---") indicates that the data is not available.

Asterisk (*) indicates that data do not meet the standards of precision or reliability.

Birth rate, death rate for all ages, rate of persons married and rate of persons divorced per 1,000 population. Fetal death ratio, mortality rates for deaths under 1 year, under 28 days, and from 28-364 days per 1,000 live births. Maternal mortality rate per 100,000 live births. Perinatal mortality rate per 1,000 live births and fetal deaths.

The increase in maternal mortality incidence reflects a change in death certificate reporting. Michigan's death certificate was revised in 2004 to comply with a change in the National Standard death certificate and a separate question related to the pregnancy status of female decedents was introduced. As has been the experience in other states, the new pregnancy status item results in the identification of maternal deaths that might otherwise have been missed. The increase in maternal death cases between 2003 and 2004 should not be considered as a change in trend.
