As of November 22, 2017, the IBIS system has been updated to use a new algorithm which uses both ZIP and county information to designate Local Health District (LHD) and Utah Small Area. Queries by LHD or Small Area may yield different numbers than in prior months. For more information go to [http://ibis.health.utah.gov/pdf/resource/Algorithm.pdf]

Death certificates in Utah are required to be filed by funeral directors. Funeral directors obtain demographic information from an informant, a close family member of the decedent. The cause of death is certified by the decedent's physician or the physician that attended the death. Accidental and suspicious deaths are certified by the Medical Examiner. Death certificate data go through extensive edits for completeness and consistency. The Office of Vital Records and Statistics (OVRS) does annual trainings for funeral directors and local registrars.

When death certificates are received the cause of death literals are keyed into software locally by Office of Vital Records and Statistics (OVRS), then shipped to NCHS where they are machine coded into ICD-10 codes. NCHS returns the ICD-10 codes to OVRS where the death records are updated.

For rates where the count is zero, a numerator of "3" was used to calculate the confidence interval (per Lillienfeld and Stolley, Foundations of Epidemiology, 1994).
