NOTES: The death rates for “12 months ending with quarter” (also called moving average rate) are the average rates for the 12 months that end with the quarter on the horizontal time axis. Estimates for the 12-month period ending with a specific quarter include all seasons of the year and, thus, are insensitive to seasonality. The rate for the 12-month period ending with the first quarter of 2016 includes deaths that occurred from April 2015 through March 2016. For comparability with rates for 12-month periods, the quarterly (3-month period) rates have been annualized to present deaths per year per 100,000 population that would be expected if the quarter specific rate prevailed for 12 months.
