Table 29. Number of deaths, death rates, and age-adjusted death rates
for major causes of death for the United States, and each State,
Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and Northern Marianas, 2003

[Rates per 100,000 population; age-adjusted rates per 100,000 U.S. standard population; see "Technical Notes." Populations used for computing death rates are postcensal estimates based on the 2000 census estimated as of July 1, 2003; see "Technical Notes." Numbers after causes of death are categories of the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, 1992. The asterisks (*) preceding the cause-of-death codes indicate that they are not part of the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision (ICD-10); see "Technical Notes." For explanation of asterisks preceding cause-of-death codes, see "Technical Notes"]
