The data is reported by place of residence, not place of death.  Counts are annual averages of three year totals. 

Data Source: Death data provided by Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH).  Base population data uses U.S. Bureau of the Census, Population Estimates Division.

Footnotes: The state total may vary from the total of all counties since the state total may include deaths for which the county of residence was unknown or may vary due to rounding.  Numbers and rates may differ from an earlier Oklahoma Kids Count Factbook due to the availability of updated or corrected data. Three year average numbers and rates are used to improve reliability of comparisons in small areas. If the total number of deaths is less than five, the data are suppressed for confidentiality purposes. County rates that are listed as NA have been suppressed. Though it may be possible to back calculate suppressed numbers, it is not permissible to do so.
