Notes: Provisional deaths are subject to monthly reporting variation. National data are calculated by summing the number of events reported by state of residence; counts are rounded to the nearest thousand (births and deaths) or hundred (infant deaths). Provisional counts may differ by approximately 5% from final counts, due to rounding and reporting variation. Additionally, the accuracy of the provisional counts may change over time. Final counts of births, deaths, and infant deaths for previous years can be obtained from http://wonder.cdc.gov. The y-axis in this chart rescales automatically based on the highest and lowest values in the selected geographic area(s). Uncheck the box for the United States and compare data across states with similar population sizes to facilitate comparisons.
