Annual Death Rate by State
Statistic Verification
Source: U.S. Census Bureau
Research Date: 7.9.2014
One can only speculate whey a certain state would have a higher death rate than another. Possibly regional diets may play a factor or it could just be an aging population in the state. States in the Southwest seem to have higher rates than West Coast and Northern Midwest territories.
