Midlife mortality rates for non-Hispanic whites by state, 1999-2013

Many have probably heard by now about the Case and Deaton publication, which documents an increase in all-cause mortality among non-Hispanic white aged 45-54, which supposedly goes against the trend for other racial groups and other countries, within that age group.

One question that may interest some people then might be how the data looks like for individual states. Well, that is rather easy to find out. Case and Deaton already stated in their publication that the data they used to document the changes in mortality rates for non-Hispanic whites comes from CDC WONDER, so that's also where my data will come from. Without further ado, here are the changes in mortality rates per 100,000 people for non-Hispanic whites aged 45-54, between the years 1999 and 2013:

Note: The data comes from CDC WONDER, which was used by Deaton and Case to document the mortality rates for non-Hispanic whites. This is explicitly stated in their publication. If you don't believe me on the data, check for yourself; the link is provided.

    1. Because CDC Wonder lacks data for many states when it comes to causes of death, it is not possible for me to complete the table. I'm not working on the table anymore.
