*Rates based on fewer than 20 events in the numerator are unstable.

**Ranks based on numbers of death.

Note: A small number of deaths with the no recorded age are included in the annual death data file. For the purpose of this analysis, those cases are not included.

Therefore, some death statistics reported in other reports may show slightly different results.
