Community Vital Statistics, Arizona, 2012
Preface
 
This publication provides readers with community-level data on live births and deaths in Arizona in 2012. Information on live births and deaths is compiled from the original documents (i.e., certificates of live birth and certificates of death) filed with the Arizona Department of Health Services. The tabulated data include:
  • Selected characteristics of newborns and mothers giving births (mother aged 19 years or younger, early prenatal care, women giving birth who had 5 or more prenatal visits, women giving birth who had no prenatal care during pregnancy, the incidence of low-birthweight (LBW) newborns, births to unwed mothers);

  • Supplementary indicators focused on socio-demographic characteristics of the women giving birth in 2012 (births by mother's race/ethnicity, births by mother's age group, births by the payee);

  • Mortality from cardiovascular disease, lung cancer, breast cancer, motor vehicle-related injuries, homicide, suicide, injury by firearms, drug-induced deaths, and alcohol-induced deaths;

  • Age-specific and race-specific mortality profiles by community.


  • The 2012 Community Vital Statistics report is the first report in this series to include cell suppression. To protect the anonymity of the individuals included in this report, cells in tables with five or fewer observations are denoted by an asterisk (*), and cells containing sums based on addends of five or fewer are rounded to the nearest tens-unit and denoted by a dagger ().
