Note: Accidents are deaths with an underlying cause of death of ICD-10 codes: V01-X59 or Y85-Y86. Accidental drug overdoses are accidental poisoining deaths (underlying cause of death X40-X44) with a related cause of death that mentions heroin, prescription opioids or other synthetic opioids(ICD-10 T40.0-T40.4,T40.6).

Rates are per 100,000. Computed by the direct method, using as the standard population the age distribution of the total population of the United States for the year 2000. The true rate lies between the lower and upper bounds of the interval with 95% statistical confidence.

AARC: Average annual rates of change or growth rates are calculated as:

[(Dn/D0)1/N-1] × 100


where Dn = the number of deaths occuring in the last time period
D0 = the number of deaths occurring in the earliest time period
N= number of years in interval.

This geometric rate of change assumes that a variable increases or decreases at the same rate during each year between the two time periods.
