Note:

PDeaths reported to the Michigan Vital Records office may be delayed by 7 days. Verifying the cause of death, and processing the records from adminstrative records may further delay the reports of deaths for statistical purposes. The deaths shown in the deaths columns will be lower than the actual year-to-date total.

Most deaths occuring between May 5, 2022 and June 30, 2022 do not have a coded cause of death.

1This table uses rural-urban commuting area (RUCA) codes developed by the Economic Research Service, USDA. RUCA codes classify U.S. census tracts and zip codes using measures of population density, urbanization and daily commuting. For this table, the RUCA codes were grouped into broader categories often used for public health related projects (for more information, see WWAMI Rural Health Research Center.)

2COVID-19 deaths are those deaths coded as ICD-10 U07.1 as an underlying or related cause of death.

3Percent of expected deaths is the number of deaths for all causes for the current week compared to the average number across the same week in 2017–2019.

4Pneumonia deaths are those deaths coded ICD-10 codes J12.0-J18.9 as an underlying cause of death or a related cause of death, but excluding any mention of flu.

5The decedent was reported as having pneumonia and COVID-19 simulataneously.

6Influenza deaths are coded as J09-J11.
