Worktable 293R lists age-adjusted death rates per 100,000 standard million population (year 2000) for NCHS' mortality tabulation list of 113 selected causes of death. Age-adjusted death rates are used to compare relative mortality risks across groups and over time; they are indexes rather than direct measures. Causes of death are tabulated for the race categories black and white. Selected causes include such major conditions as heart disease, cancer, stroke, chronic respiratory diseases, pneumonia and influenza, diabetes, accidents (unintentional injuries), kidney conditions, atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), septicemia (infection of the bloodstream), Alzheimer's disease, birth defects, conditions originating in the perinatal period, complications related to pregnancy and childbirth, assault (homicide), intentional self-harm (suicide), anemia, chronic liver disease and cirrhosis, hypertension, and other major causes of death. A number of States did not provide complete confirmation of deaths from infrequent and rare causes. For technical details, see technical appendix.
