Data Access


Welcome to VitalStats, a collection of vital statistics products including tables, data files, and reports that allow users to access and examine vital statistics and population data interactively.

Use our prebuilt tables and reports for quick access to statistics.  Or, you can use the data files to create your own tables--choosing from over 100 variables.  Using the data files takes a little more time but gives you access to more data.  You can customize the tables, and create charts, graphs, and maps.  You can even export the data for use offline or in another format. Please see the Getting Started Quick Guide [PDF - 180 KB] for more information.
