Source: CDC, National Center for Health Statistics, Multiple Cause of Death 1999–2017 on CDC WONDER Online Database. Data are from the 2013–2017 Multiple Cause of Death files and are based on information from all death certificates filed in the vital records offices of the fifty states and the District of Columbia through the Vital Statistics Cooperative Program. Deaths of nonresidents (e.g., nonresident aliens, nationals living abroad, residents of Puerto Rico, Guam, the Virgin Islands, and other territories of the US) and fetal deaths are excluded. Accessed at http://wonder.cdc.gov/mcd-icd10.html on August 23, 2019. CDC WONDER dataset documentation and technical methods can be accessed at https://wonder.cdc.gov/wonder/help/mcd.html#.

* Rates for race/ethnicity, sex, and the overall total are age-adjusted per 100,000 U.S. standard population in 2000 using the following age group distribution (in years): <1, 1–4, 5–14, 15–24, 25–34, 35–44, 45–54, 55–64, 65–74, 75–84, and 85+. Missing data are not included. For age-adjusted death rates, the age-specific death rate is rounded to one decimal place before proceeding to the next step in the calculation of age-adjusted death rates for NCHS Multiple Cause of Death on CDC WONDER. This rounding step may affect the precision of rates calculated for small numbers of deaths.

† Cause of death is defined as one of the multiple causes of death and is based on the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision (ICD-10) codes B17.1, and B18.2 (hepatitis C).

Note: Numbers are slightly lower than previously reported for 2013–2016 due to NCHS standards which restrict displayed data to US residents.

Bar chart for years 2013 through 2017. Y axis has number of cases, ranging from 0 to 50,000.

Source: CDC, National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System.

* The number of estimated viral hepatitis cases was determined by multiplying the number of reported cases by a factor that adjusted for under-ascertainment and under-reporting (5). Corrected multipliers and confidence intervals developed by the CDC are shown in the Appendix A. In this visual representation, the sum of reported and estimated not reported total the estimated number of acute cases.
