Note: Age-adjusted death rates are based on age-specific death rates per 100,000 population in specified group. Age-adjusted death rates are computed by the direct method, using as the standard population the age distribution of the total population of the United States as projected for the year 2000. 

Asterisk (*) indicates that data do not meet standards of reliability or precision.

COVID‐19 deaths were classified using ICD-10 U07.1 or U07.2 as the underlying cause of death.
