This data collection presents information about the causes
of deaths occurring in the United States during 1959 to 1967. Data are provided
concerning underlying causes of death, place of death, whether there
were multiple conditions that caused the death, and what those
conditions were. In addition, data are provided on date of death, and
on sex, race, age, marital status, and origin or descent of the
deceased. Also included is information on residence of the deceased
(state, county, city, region, and whether the county was a metropolitan
or nonmetropolitan area).
The 1967 data file does not match the PDF documentation. This file was created by comparing means and frequencies to 1967 VSUS tables and/or the 1966 file.

In preparing the data tape(s) for this collection, the
National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) has removed direct
identifiers and characteristics that might lead to identification of
data subjects. As an additional precaution, NCHS requires, under
section 308(d) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 242m), that
data collected by NCHS not be used for any purpose other than
statistical analysis and reporting. NCHS further requires that analysts
not use the data to learn the identity of any persons or establishments
and that the director of NCHS be notified if any identities are
inadvertently discovered. ICPSR member institutions and other users
ordering data from ICPSR are expected to adhere to these restrictions.
