New Death Statistics from Federal Government

Posted: July 29, 2011

The National Center for Health Statistics, part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, released the report "Death in the United States, 2009."

The report contains new evidence that Americans are living longer and that fewer Americans are dying. The statistics-laden report says the U.S. death rate is 45% lower than it was in 1960, that women outlive men, and that there are regional, racial and ethnic differences in the death rate.
