  • Description:
    Effective with Volume 47, Number 1, the Monthly Vital Statistics Report (MVSR) has been renamed the National Vital Statistics Reports. The monthly issue has become a two-page publication, containing Technical notes and two tables that show provisional vital statistics for the United States. The Current Mortality Sample has been replaced with a detailed biannual report of births and deaths (Births and Deaths: United States) based on preliminary data. Tables previously published in the MVSR that show provisional data by State are now available on the NCHS home page on the Internet at www.cdc.gov/nchswww/

    Data shown here are provisional and include only events occurring within the United States (50 States and the District of Columbia). Mortality data exclude fetal deaths. Delay in the receipt of certificates in a registration office may result in a low figure for a given month followed by a high figure for the month(s) in which the delayed records were received. Totals for births, deaths, and infant deaths are based on the State estimates by State of residence and, therefore, in effect, exclude events to nonresidents of the United States. Events to nonresidents of the United States are included in all marriage and divorce figures. The effect of excluding events to nonresidents from the U.S. totals is small. Divorce figures include reported annulments. The populations used for computing rates are furnished by the U.S. Bureau of the Census. Monthly rates are based on populations estimated for the specific month. Year-to-date rates are averages of monthly rates that have been weighted by the number of days in the corresponding months. Rates for 12-month periods are the sum of events for the period per population estimated at the midpoint of the period. Because monthly infant mortality rates are based on relatively few events, they are highly variable, and comparisons of monthly infant mortality rates should be interpreted cautiously.
