Footnotes
Number of deaths reported in this table are the total number of deaths received and coded as of the date of analysis, and do not represent all deaths that occurred in that period. Data for 2019 and 2020 are provisional and may be incomplete because of the lag in time between when the death occurred and when the death certificate is completed, submitted to NCHS and processed for reporting purposes. Causes of death included in this dataset are tabulated by underlying cause of death ICD-10 codes. COVID-19 deaths by underlying cause and multiple cause of death are also included.
