  • Description:
    In 2011, the age-adjusted death rate for the United States was 740.6 per 100,000 population. This rate represents a 0.9% drop from the rate in 2010 (747.0), and is a record low. The highest mortality was observed for the non-Hispanic black population (903.9), followed by the non=Hispanic white population (753.9). Death rates for all race groups of the U.S. population generally have been decreasing since 1935 , and the rates for the Hispanic population have been declining since the late 1990s. Data for 2011 maintain that trend. The figures presented in this report are based on preliminary mortality data for 2011 and final data for 2000-2010.
