Single Years Filter: 2015
Data Grouped By:Single Years
ICD Stands for International Classification of Diseases. It is a coding system maintained by the World Health Organization and the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics used to classify causes of death on death certificates and diagnoses, injury causes, and medical procedures for hospital and emergency department visits. These codes are updated every decade or so to account for advances in medical technology. The U.S. is currently using the 10th revision (ICD-10) to code causes of death. The 9th revision (ICD-9) is still used for hospital and emergency department visits.

Rates are age-adjusted to the 2000 U.S. standard population.

Prior to 2015 San Juan County was part of the Southeast Local Health District. In 2015 the San Juan County Local Health District was formed. Data reported are for all years using the current boundaries.
  • Utah Death Certificate Database, Office of Vital Records and Statistics, Utah Department of Health. Utah Population Estimates Committee (UPEC) and the Governor's Office of Planning and Budget (GOPB) for years 1980-1999. For years 2000 and later the population estimates are provided by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) through a collaborative agreement with the U.S. Census Bureau, IBIS Version 2015.
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. On August 13, 2013 the 2010 and 2011 cause of death data have been updated using the NCHS Revised Causes of Death Mortality data set.

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