PRB's interactive map by gender and state of death rates for Americans age 55+
NIA Aging Centers News Reference
In collaboration with Andrew Fenelon from the University of Maryland, the Population Reference Bureau created an interactive visualization tool for age-standardized death rates in each US state for residents age 55 and above, by gender. A graph below the map allows comparison to all other states of the selected group. NIA's John Haaga says: "State-level death rates at older ages give us a good, but not perfect, indicator of what’s happening to population health."
