$179 / year

This dataset contains estimates of mortality rates due to the major causes of death among the population of New York City, starting 2007. The estimated data for crude and age-adjusted mortality rates due the major causes of death are described by gender and race/ethnicity of the population groups.


The source of data is represented by which is managed and hosted by the U.S. General Services Administration,¬†Technology Transformation Service and publishes open U.S. Government data, in this case data provided by New York City’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH).

Mortality data (death data) are derived from death certificates, which contain demographic information such as the decedent’s sex, race and residence as well as information about the cause of death. Patients often have multiple conditions contributing to death. Documenting the conditions on the death certificate requires basic training. As a part of the ongoing effort to improve cause of death documentation and reporting, New York City’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) has developed several resources and training materials for medical facilities. Briefly described, the recommended steps for an accurate cause of death reporting by DOHMH are the following:

– the cause of death should reflect physicians medical opinion as based on the medical record
– document the complete chain of events that best explains why this patient died
– document other conditions that contributed to death in a specific and complete manner
