Abstract

The age-adjusted death rate for the United States declined from 1,010.6 deaths per 100,000 population in 1979 to 724.6 per 100,000 population in 2014, the lowest rate ever recorded. Over the same period, rates for females declined 21.9% from 789.9 to 616.7, while rates for males declined 35.0% from 1,316.2 to 855.1, thus narrowing the mortality gap between males and females.
