a The numbers of deaths for infant mortality are based on a record weight from the linked birth and infant death file which adjusts for the approximately 2-3% of records each year which cannot be linked to their corresponding birth certificates. Therefore, because of number rounding, the number of deaths for sub-groups may not add to the total.

DSU - Data do not meet the criteria for statistical reliability, data quality, or confidentiality (based on < 20 deaths).

Key: AI/AN: American Indian or Alaska Native; API: American Indian or Alaska Native; NHOPI: Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander.
