Project Objective

To provide an analytical research database for the purpose of studying the effect of demographic and socio-economic differentials on U.S. mortality rates.  Specific objectives of this project are:

  1. To provide answers to specific public health questions which are not available from other sources.
  2. To publish research findings in scholarly, scientific and health related journals.
  3. To release a public-use file.  This file will be released only after extensive review to ensure that the confidentiality of respondents has been protected.  The release of the public-use file must be approved by the Census Bureau’s Disclosure Review Board and the organizations contributing data to the file.
