QuickStats: Age-Adjusted Death Rates* for Parkinson Disease --- United States, 1973--2003

Quickstats

* Per 100,000 standard U.S. population.

Coded in accordance with the International Classification of Diseases, Eighth Revision, Adapted, during 1973--1978 and the Ninth Revision during 1979--1998. The Tenth Revision (codes G20-G21) is now in effect.

Annual U.S. death rates for Parkinson disease increased during 1973--2003. Parkinson disease became the 14th leading cause of death in the United States in 2003. This increase might be attributable to multiple factors, including an aging population, greater awareness of the disease, and improved identification of cases.
