United States life tables by cases of death : 1959-61
Details:
  • Description:
    The life tables in this report are based on the I960 census of population and the deaths of the 3-year period 1959-61.1 Separate life tables are presented for the total population and for each of the four color-sex combinations: white male, white female, nonwhite male, and nonwhite feriiale. Life tables were also prepared for the total population of each color and of each sex. These can be obtained on request from the Office of the Actuary, Social Security Administration, Washington, D.C.

    This is the first time that official life tables by causes of death are being published. Similar calculations were made with respect to the 1939-41 and 1949-51 decennial life table programs, but the results were given only limited distribution. A few of these earlier values are included in this report in the comparisons with the results for earlier periods. However, for some of the life table functions and some of the causes of death this is the first time that values have been calculated.

    Each of the tables for the, 1959-61 period is based on data for the entire United States, i.e., the 50 States and the District of Columbia. The deaths for the 3-year period were taken as compiled by the Division of Vital Statistics, National Center for Health Statistics, by age, color, sex, and cause of death. The causes were classified according to the Seventh Revision of the International List of Diseases arid Causes of Death, 1955 (ICD). These were later combined into the following groups and subgroups. .

    In the following listing the numbers in parentheses represent the ICD codes for the causes included in each group. The results of computations for those groups of causes shown in italics are presented in this report. However, calculations were also made for the remaining groups, and results may be obtained on request from the Office of the Actuary, Social Security Administration, Washington, D.C.
