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.
