Mortality Tables

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

Detailed mortality tables prepared by the Division of Vital Statistics, National Center for Health Statistics, include data on age, race, sex, cause-of-death, life expectancy, and infant mortality. Some of the tables present national-level data, others feature State-level data.  A number of States did not provide complete confirmation of deaths from infrequent and rare causes (see Technical Appendix for details).  A detailed description is provided for each table in the following categories: general mortality, leading causes of death, life expectancy, linked birth/infant death data, and population.

Beginning with the 2008 data year, many annual tables are no longer produced.  Users are directed to CDC WONDER a detailed mortality database.  This tool enables users to create tables with the content that was available in previously produced tables.

Historical tables are available for the period 1900-1998.
