This interactive data visualization tool shows modeled estimates of US county-level trends in mortality rates for 21 major causes of death overall and by sex for the years 1980 through 2014. Estimates were generated using a Bayesian small area estimation model with death certificate data from the National Center for Health Statistics. County-level estimates of life expectancy1 and risk factor prevalence2-6 from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, not reported in this article, are also available in this data visualization tool.

Use the settings at the top to select a year, cause of death, and sex. Use the time trend menu on the right to explore time trends for specific counties. This data visualization tool was developed by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington.

Where CME credit is designated, the activity is part of the American Medical Association's accredited CME program. The AMA is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
