The cells show proportionate mortality ratios (PMRs) for each cause of death by industries. The PMRs indicate whether mortality is high or low compared to the general population for the disease specified.

Source: For these charts, death certificates for decedents that died in one of the 23 U.S. states between 1999 and 2007 were the source of age (ages 18-90), race (black, white), gender, usual occupation and industry and cause of death. PMRs were calculated with all races and genders combined to evaluate the mortality patterns for 23 site-specific cancers and 17 cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, diabetes, and renal diseases for the larger industries in each of ten sectors: agriculture, forestry, fishing; mining; oil and gas; construction; manufacturing, wholesale & retail trade; transportation, warehousing & utilities; healthcare & social assistance; health care / social services; and services. If a PMR is greater than 100 in the chart, it is elevated; if less, it is said to be decreased. User may consult crosswalks for ICD10 and 2000 Census industry category codes (Chronic Disease and Industry Categories).

When the number of deaths is less than or equal to three, PMRs are displayed, but the number of deaths is indicated by a dash.

PMRs are computed when the data for the population at risk are not available and death rates cannot be computed. Thus the PMRs presented indicate whether the proportion of deaths due to a specific cause appears to be high or low for a particular industry compared to all industries. The 95% confidence intervals (95% CI) were computed based on the Poisson distribution if the observed number of deaths was 1000 or less; otherwise, test-based CIs were computed based on the Mantel and Haenszel chi square test.
