Health Indicators

All Causes of Death, All Causes of Premature Mortality, and Ten Leading Causes of Death

“The Health Indicators reports describe 30 year trends in mortality rates for North Carolina regions and counties.  The reports describe trends in total mortality (all causes of death combined), premature mortality, and crude and age-adjusted mortality, for 10 leading causes of death, as well as rates by race and gender.  Reports are produced annually for the 41-county Eastern North Carolina region (counties east of I-95) and for the 29-county Northeastern region.
