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.

Asterisk (*) indicates that data do not meet standards of reliability or precision.   Care should be taken drawing inferences from rates based on small numbers of events or small population base. These rates tend to exhibit considerable variation which may negate their usefulness for comparative purposes.
