Note: Rates are per 100,000 population. Cancer includes leukemias, aleukemias, and Hodgkin's disease beginning with 1921. Stroke was called cerebrovascular disease between 1969 - 1995 and vascular lesions affecting central nervous system prior to 1968. Accidents included motor vehicle accidents. Accidents exclude injuries undetermined whether accidentally or purposely inflicted since 1968. Motor vehicle accidents do not include collision with heavier vehicles from 1910 through 1922. Motorcycle accidents are included beginning 1923. Chronic liver disease and cirrhosis was called cirrhosis of the liver prior to 1979. Atherosclerosis was called general arteriosclerosis prior to 1968 and was called arteriosclerosis from 1968-1978.

The underlying cause of death is the condition giving rise to the chain of events leading to death. Between January 1, 1979 and December 31, 1998, the underlying causes of death were classified in accordance with the Ninth Revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9), a coding structure developed by the World Health Organization. Starting January 1, 1999, causes of death were classified using the Tenth Revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10). With each revision there are differences in classifying the underlying cause of death. Therefore, health statistics based on one revision are not directly comparable to the other revision without the use of comparability ratios.

The comparability ratio results from double-coding a large sample of the national mortality file, once by the old revision (ICD-9) and again by the new revision (ICD-10), and expressing the results of the comparison as a ratio of deaths for a cause of death by the later revision divided by the number of that cause of death coded and classified by the earlier revision. A ratio greater than 1.0 indicates that the new coding structure will classify more deaths to that underlying cause of death. The comparability ratio for motor vehicle accidents is .85; for Atherosclerosis the ratio is .96. The ICD-10/ICD-9 conversion table shows comparability ratios for other causes of death shown in this table.

See the National Center for Health Statistics for more information on the comparability ratio and the classification of mortality.
