Death rate in Arizona by Race, gender, age in 1993 to 1999. Please
define the death rate. For example, do deahts refer to all deaths in
an age group or the average for each age? Lung cancer deaths in
arizona by Race, gender, age in 1993 to 1999.

I have found the data that you require not for (1993 - 1999) but for
(1990 - 2000) which is the usual benchmark and since such census data
is taken every ten years. Will this be accepted as a legitimate
answer? Just let me know. :)

As for lung cancer I only have data for Race and Gender and not per
age group. But what I have for age group is death rate for respiratory
diseases. Would this also be acceptable? :)

I need death rate in Arizona by Race, gender, age in 1993 and 1996.
Other years would be helpful. If you could give me data in 1993 and
1996. It would be fine.

For lung cancer, could you tell me in detail about the data you have
(Race and Gender)?

Thank you for your help

Dear michone,

Thanks for your question.  First, let me request that if any of the
following is unclear or if you require any further research – please
don’t hesitate to ask me for a clarification.

The information you requested is scattered among the following tables.
 Let me know if you have questions.

Great AZ death stats 1993 through 1996 -

Most common causes of death in Arizona – good presentation, but mostly

Arizona Health Status and Vital Statistics 1996 – Mortality

This last page is an introduction to all of the tables I have listed
here below; however, they are only accessible through Google cache
(I’d download them if I were you, you never know when they will

Infant mortality tables for 1986-1996

Children 1-14 by gender, area and ethnic group for 1996 –

Male and Female Leading Causes of Death Age 15-19

Male and Female Leading Causes of Death Age 20-44

Male and Female Leading Causes of Death Age 45-64

45-64 by Gender, Area and Ethnic Group for 1996

65 and Older by Gender, Area and Ethnic Group for 1996

Male and Female Leading Causes of Death Age 65 and older

Total Mortality by County and Year, covers 1993 as well as 1996

The following page will allow you to access the 1997 tables; there is
some new data here on death by ethnic background and by disease, but
the years are not always relevant for you –

Arizona’s “Leading Causes of Death” report for 1997 is at –

The American Lung Association provides some additional lung cancer
stats at –

As well as the lung disease trend by gender –

The following report will provide you with lung cancer stats by gender
and ethnic background for 1996 –

Finally, the following is a bibliography that may provide pointers to
any other nuggets of data you may need for your work – Strategy.pdf

I hope this response adequately addresses your request.  Please let me
know if you are in need of additional information concerning this


P.S. If you would like I could also point you to the census data (some
of it you will find in one of the reports linked above) – but note
that census data will only relate to 1990 and 2000 data (and of course
earlier data if you are in need of it).

Search Strategy:

"death rate" Arizona 1993 1996 
"death rate" Arizona 1993 1996 "lung cancer"

Michone -

Hi, thanks for your request.
At this time, Google researchers cannot attach files to replies -
therefore, I cannot zip the information up for you.

Let me address the two links you had been having trouble with - 

The first does work - the tables that link from that page (which do
not work) are most of the rest of the urls I had supplied you with;
they are cached by Google and you can access them through the urls I
had provided.  The tables are available, but the figures are not;
however, figures are available through Arizona's 1997 survey, a link
to which was supplied.

The second does not work now, my apologies - however, good news - it
is also cached by Google and can be accessed here:

I hope this clarification assists you further.

Thank for your big help. I'm happy with the result. This is my first

Michone -

Thanks for the wonderful rating, I'm glad I could be of help.  I get
paid by Google, based on the fee you had initially suggested ($15). 
When you are extremely satisfied with an answer, you can tip the
researcher above and beyond this initial sum; however, since you had
already rated the answer I am not sure you can still add a tip.

In any event, thanks again for the great feedback and let me know if I
can be of service in the future.
