(a) CAUSE OF DEATH IS CODED BY THE INTERNATIONAL CLASSIFICATION OF DISEASES. DEATHS IN 1979 TO 1998 WERE CODED ACCORDING TO ICD-9. EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 1999 DEATHS WERE CODED ACCORDING TO ICD-10. SINCE SIGNIFICANT CHANGES WERE MADE IN ICD-10, THE CODE NUMBERS FOR ICD-9 AND ICD-10 ARE GIVEN IN ADDITION TO COMPARABILITY RATIOS WHICH HAVE BEEN APPLIED TO THE EARLIER RATES TO MAKE THEM COMPARABLE TO THE ICD-10 RATES.

(b) RATES PRESENTED HERE MAY DIFFER FROM THE 1999 VITAL STATISTICS REPORT BECAUSE THE COMPARABILITY RATIOS HAVE BEEN EXTENDED TO FOUR DECIMAL PLACES, AND THE 1991-1999 POPULATION ESTIMATES HAVE BEEN REVISED BASED ON THE 2000 CENSUS.
