Notes:

  • The total of "all causes" represents all deaths that occurred for the respective age group. The total of the five leading causes of death does not equal 100 percent.
  • The term legal intervention refers to deaths caused in the course of a police officer attempting to make an arrest or intervening during a criminal activity.
  • Leading causes of death uses the following race/ethnicity categories: White includes White Hispanic and White non-Hispanic; Black includes Black Hispanic and Black non-Hispanic; Hispanic includes White Hispanic, Black Hispanic, Hispanic Other, and Hispanic Race Not Stated.
  • Percentages represent the three-year average number of deaths for children for each cause occurring in the specified age group.
  • Prior to 1999, chronic lower respiratory disease (CLRD) was called chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
  • Due to rounding, causes could have similar numbers but different rates.
