    Abstract -- Introduction -- Methodology-- Results -- References -- List of detailed tables.

    Objectives: This report presents abridged cause-elimination life tables and multiple-decrement life table functions for 33 selected causes of death, by race (white and black) and sex, for the total United States. It is the fourth in a set of reports that present life table data for the United States and each state for the period 1999-2001. Methods: The life table functions presented in this report represent the mortality experience of a hypothetical cohort assuming that a particular cause of death is eliminated. The report includes a description of the methodology used to estimate the life table functions shown in four sets of tables. Each set contains seven tables, one each for the total population, total males, total females, white males, white females, black males, and black females. Results: From birth, a person has a 31% chance of dying of Diseases of heart (heart disease) and a 22% chance of dying of Malignant neoplasms (cancer). In contrast, the probabilities of dying from Accidents (unintentional injuries), Diabetes mellitus (diabetes), and Septicemia -- 3 of the 10 leading causes of death in 1991-2001-- are much smaller. Likewise, elimination of heart disease would increase life expectancy at birth by almost 4 years, and elimination of cancer by more than 3 years. Other leading causes of death have a much smaller impact.

    by Elizabeth Arias, Melonie Heron, and Betzaida Tejada-Vera, Division of Vital Statistics. ; This report presents cause-elimination life tables and multiple-decrement life table functions for 33 selected causes of death by race (white and black) and sex for the total United States. The selected causes include the 15 leading causes of death for the total population in 2000, the midpoint in 1999-2001; leading causes of death for specific age-race-sex groups; and other causes, such as Major cardiovascular diseases, for which requests for data were common. The report is the fourth in a set of reports presenting life table data for the United States and each state during 1999-2001. U.S. decennial life tables have been published for every decennial period beginning with 1900-1902, and cause-elimination life tables were added to the series for 1959-1961. ; "CS238975." ; Includes bibliographical references (p. 14-16). ; Arias E, Heron M, Tejada-Vera B.
