Estimated 2018 Death Rates for Several Leading Causes Of Death Released

NCHS has released its latest quarterly data on provisional mortality rates in the U.S. for several leading causes of death.  This data set features the first estimated (provisional) death rates for full-year 2018 for disease-related leading causes of death.  Full-year 2018 provisional death rates for external causes of death such as drug overdoses, homicide, firearm mortality, and suicide will not yet be available in this quarterly release.

Also, this quarterly release of data features only death rates (the number of deaths per 100,000 population) and not whole numbers of deaths.

This data is available on an interactive online dashboard at the following address:  https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/mortality-dashboard.htm.
