Abstract: This data collection includes information about the cause of all recorded deaths occurring in the United States, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas during 2002. Data are provided concerning underlying causes of death, multiple conditions that caused the death, place of death, residence of the deceased (e.g., region, division, state, county), whether an autopsy was performed, and the month and day of the week of the death. In addition, data are supplied on the sex, race, age, marital status, education, usual occupation, and origin or descent of the deceased. Causes of death were coded according to the International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision. Place of death is classified by state and county. In residence classification, all deaths are allocated to the usual place of residence as reported on the death certificate and are classified by state, county and city.
