NORMS National Database

Graphical depiction of the NORMS logo The National Database query will generate a variety of summary statistics in the form of tables, charts, and maps. Examples of the types of statistics that this application generates are number of deaths, crude death rates, age-adjusted death rates, and years of potential life lost (YPLL) by year, age group, race, gender, or Hispanic origin at the national, state, and county levels since 1968. Data from additional sources, such as population estimates, comparative standard population, and life-table values are incorporated into the system. County-level tables can be obtained for one or all 50 states for certain time intervals of 10 or more years (see below). All results for states and counties with less than 10 deaths are suppressed. Ideally, comparability ratios should be applied to rates when analyzing trends over time intervals spanning more than one ICD revision.

Maps of individual states will automatically default to county outlines. Charts will include each year in the selected time interval. County-level charts are precluded. Due to health-information privacy regulations, county-level data will be generated only for the following time intervals:

  • 1970 -to- 1979, 1984, 1989, 1994, 1999, 2004, 2009 and 2014
  • 1975 -to- 1984, 1989, 1994, 1999, 2004, 2009 and 2014
  • 1980 -to- 1989, 1994, 1999, 2004, 2009 and 2014
  • 1985 -to- 1994, 1999, 2004, 2009 and 2014
  • 1990 -to- 1999, 2004, 2009 and 2014
  • 1995 -to- 2004, 2009 and 2014
  • 2000 -to- 2009 and 2014
  • 2005 -to- 2014
