Summary
Vital Statistics of The United States: Births, Life Expectancy, Deaths, and Selected Health Data brings together a comprehensive collection of birth, mortality, and health data into a single volume. It provides a wealth of information compiled by the National Center for Health Statistics and other government agencies. Vital Statistics contains over 225 tables and is divided into 4 parts : Births, Mortality, Health, and Marriage and Divorce. This edition contains updated tables which provide a more comprehensive look at births, mortality, health, and marriage and divorce. Some of the subjects covered include premature and low birthweights, births by cesarean section, five-year cancer survival rates, percentage of individuals with no health insurance coverage, mortality by age and cause of death, and rate of the 15 most common causes of mortality. Charts and graphs, available at applicable points in each chapter, illustrate some of the most vital trends in the data. In addition, updated definitions reflect the latest federal parameters for information about births, mortality, health, and marriages. New to sixth edition of Vital Statistics: A new chapter provides statistics on marriage and divorce from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Census Bureau. The new information includes rates for marriages and divorces, marital statuses for adults 18 years of age and over, median age at first marriage, median durations of current marriages, and statistics on marriages ending in widowhood and separation
