— There were no deaths in this table cell.
1Rates per 100,000 population computed by the direct standardization method, using the Year 2000 total population of the United States as the standard age distribution.
2 Excludes deaths for which Hispanic origin was unknown and all 1991 through 1996 deaths from Oklahoma and New Hampshire where Hispanic origin was unknown in more than 90 percent of all cirrhosis deaths. Data on Hispanic origin not shown for years earlier than 1991.
3 Includes deaths for which Hispanic origin was unknown.
4 Rates are not reliable due to the small number of cirrhosis deaths among Black Hispanics.
5 Deaths based on a 50-percent sample.
