* This comparison does not account for the change in the magnitude of the total population, nor differences in age structure between these time periods. Also, during 1999 there was a change in revision from the ICD-9 to ICD-10. Therefore, diseases may be categorized differently between the two comparison periods.
** For all causes: Average number of deaths 1990-1994 is 104,443; total deaths 1999 is 108,122. Average number of male deaths 1990-1994 is 52,768; female deaths is 51,675. In 1999 the number of male deaths is 52,400; female deaths is 55,722

* During 1999 there was a change in revision from the ICD-9 to ICD-10. The change includes revision of categories, re-grouping of diseases, re-named causes of death, and modification of coding rules. Thus, there are issues of comparability with data from previous years.
