    Key findings:

    ● In 2020, the age-adjusted death rate for COVID-19 was highest in the most urban areas (large central metropolitan) (97.7 per 100,000), which was 30% higher than in medium metropolitan areas (75.0), where the rate was the lowest.

    ● For males, the age-adjusted COVID-19 death rate in 2020 was highest in the most urban areas (129.3); for females, the highest rates were in the most urban (72.8) and the most rural (noncore) (73.8) areas.

    ● For people under age 65, COVID-19 death rates for males were highest among those living in the most urban areas, but among females rates were highest in the most rural areas.

    ● For people aged 65 and over, COVID-19 death rates for males were highest in the most urban areas; rates were highest for females in the most urban and the most rural areas.
