1 Estimates are based on a 10-percent sample of death certificates.

* For the years 1900-1902 data are for 10 States and the District of Columbia. Beginning with 1929-31 data are for the continental United States. Figures for the nonwhite population cover Negroes only, but for each of these periods the Negro population accounted for 95 percent or more of the nonwhite population.
