1 Annual rates are based on total population residing in area, enumerated as of Apr, 1 for decennial census years and estimated as of July 1 for all other years. Monthly rates are based on monthly estimates of the population but are shown on an annual basis. All data are limited to deaths occurring within the continental United States through 1958. The total number of deaths includes Alaska beginning with 1959, and both Alaska and Hawaii are included in all series beginning with 1960.

? For a given year, the age-adjusted death rate is that rate which would have resulted if the mortality of each age group during the given year had been experienced by a population with a standard age distribu. tion-in this case the age distribution that prevailed on Apr. 1, 1940.

3 Estimated from a 10 percent sample of death certificates.
