      * States in the map above are filled with a checkered texture if their death rate is statistically significant

      * Estimate does not meet standards of reliability or precision. Death rates are flagged as "Unreliable" in the chart when the rate is calculated with a numerator of 20 or less.

      * Estimates for the most recent quarter are significantly different from the same quarter of the previous year (p < 0.05). Significance for state-specific rates can be found in the map's tool tip.

      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. 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. “All age groups” includes infants below the age of one year. “Total US population” includes all deaths that occurred in the 50 states and the District of Columbia.

      NOTES: Deaths from Septicemia were identified using underlying cause-of-death codes A40–A41 in the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision. 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. Map displays age-adjusted rates for the 12 months ending with the most recent quarter. Crude and age-adjusted data for prior quarters are available for download.

      NOTES: Deaths from stroke were identified using underlying cause-of-death codes I60–I69 in the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision.

      NOTES: Deaths from unintentional injuries were identified using underlying cause-of-death codes V01–X59, and Y85–Y86 in the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision. 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.

      A hollow circle indicates that estimates for the most recent quarter are significantly different from the same quarter of the previous year (p < 0.05); these estimates are also flagged in the data table with an asterisk (*).
