Allegheny County Mortality Indicators

Metadata Updated: January 24, 2023

This data includes counts of deaths by race (total, Black, white) by age grouping and cause of death by Census Tract aggregated over a five-year period (2014-18). Data extracted from Pennsylvania's Electronic Death Registry System (EDRS) with the following disclaimer: "These data were provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Health. The Department specifically disclaims responsibility for any analyses, interpretations, or conclusions."

Census tract of residence was determined using address-level data. Records were excluded from analysis if address was missing or unmatched to a census tract (≈1% records). Census tracts starting with 980x.xx, 981x.xx, and 982x.xx were also excluded due to a geocoding error.

For cause of death by census tract, counts were assessed using census tract by age and race; records were excluded if age, race, or location data were missing. Census-tract level counts < 5 are censored and displayed as NULL. Census-tract-level counts may not equal county-level counts when summed due to censored data or missing data.
