Persons with disabilities who experience problems accessing PDF files should contact or call 301-458-4688.

Worktable GMWKIII lists the number of deaths for NCHS' mortality tabulation list of 358 selected causes of death. Deaths are tabulated for 5-year age groups and for the race categories black and white for each State and the District of Columbia. 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), unintentional 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 in 1999-2007 from infrequent and rare causes. For technical details, see technical notes [PDF - 555 KB] until technical appendix becomes available.

The number of files comprising the 1999-2000, 2001, and 2002-2007 tables vary.
