The CDC National Center for Health Statistics web page “Stats of the States” has been updated to include the latest state-based final data on selected vital statistics topics, including:
General fertility rates
Teen birth rates
Selected other maternal and infant health measures
Marriage & divorce rates
Leading causes of death
Other high profile causes of death.
The site’s map pages allow users to rank states from highest to lowest or vice versa. This latest version of “Stats of the States” also includes two new topics: Life expectancy by state and COVID-19 death rates by state (provisional data on a quarterly basis, through Q3 of 2020). All death rates are adjusted for age. Rates are featured in the maps because they best illustrate the impact of a specific measure on a particular state.
CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics has updated its “Stats of the States” feature on the NCHS web site. This resource features the latest state-by-state comparisons on key health indicators ranging from birth topics such as teen births and cesarean deliveries to leading causes of death and health insurance coverage.
Tabs have been added to the color-coded maps to compare trends on these topics between the most recent years (2015 and 2014) and going back a decade (2005) and in some cases further back.
