Deaths by State of Occurrence

Deaths classified by state of occurrence are the number of deaths occurring in a state regardless of where the individual resides. Preventable injury-related fatality data is also available by state of residence (number of deaths among individuals who live in a given state). State of occurrence data should be used when tracking where deaths occur, and state of residency data should be used to compare relative risk among states.
