Preventable teen death rate

Data Provided by:

DEFINITIONS & SOURCES

COLLAPSE

Definitions: Number of deaths from homicide, suicide, and accidents to persons aged 15 through 19 per 100,000 persons in that age group. 

Data Source: Special tabulations provided by the Alabama Department of Public Health, Center for Health Statistics.

Footnotes: Depending on the county and the specific indicator, percentages and rates are sometimes computed using a small number of cases. Since measurement error is potentially higher when the number of events is small and the resulting rates/percentages are not as stable as those based on larger numbers, caution should be exercised in using data based on limited numbers.
