    Key findings Data from the National Vital Statistics System, Mortality • The average age-adjusted death rate for the five states with the highest rates (926.8 per 100,000 standard population) was 49% higher than the rate for the five states with the lowest rates (624.0). • Age-specific death rates for all age groups were higher for the states with the highest rates compared with the states with the lowest rates. • Age-adjusted death rates were higher for non-Hispanic white and non-Hispanic black populations but lower for the Hispanic population in states with the highest rates than in states with the lowest rates. • The age-adjusted death rates for chronic lower respiratory diseases and unintentional injuries for the states with the highest rates (62.0 and 65.5, respectively) were almost doubled compared with the states with the lowest rates (31.0 and 35.8). Mortality in the United States varies widely by state (1). This report compares average age-adjusted death rates by sex, race and ethnicity, and five leading causes of death between a group of five states with the highest age-adjusted death rates (Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and West Virginia) and a group of five states with the lowest age-adjusted death rates (California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Minnesota, and New York) in 2017 (2). Age-specific death rates for the two groups are presented as well. Suggested citation: Xu JQ.
