Complete Indicator Profile of Total Deaths - All Causes

Definition

All deaths includes all resident deaths for all causes of death.

Numerator

Total number of deaths (ICD-10: All codes)

Denominator

Total resident population

Data Interpretation Issues

The population estimates are U.S. Census Bureau estimates of U.S. national, state, and county resident populations. The year 2010 population estimates are April 1 modified census counts, with bridged-race categories. The 2007 - 2009 population estimates are bridged-race revised intercensal estimates of the July 1 resident population, based on the year 2000 and the year 2010 census counts (released by NCHS on 10/26/2012).

Why Is This Important?

The overall death rate of a population reflects the average life expectancy of individuals in that population. The lower the death rate, the higher the life expectancy.
