About the Data
Mortality data in this story was queried from the CDC Wonder API, based on the following parameters:
• UCD code: [C00-C97].
• All days, autopsy statuses, places of death.
The charts show the CDC's age-adjusted rate, rather than crude rate, to account for variations in age-distribution and population size—with the exception of the chart comparing rates by age group.
Prevalence data is from the CDC's Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS).
